- Title: I’m OK, You’re OK: Key GDPR Vendor and Contract Issues for U.S. Companies
- Sponsor: California Lawyers Association’s IP Section’s Technology, Internet and Privacy Subcommittee
- Date: Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at Noon PDT
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) that takes effect this month potentially applies to companies situated anywhere in the world–if they are processing EU personal data.
This new law will affect countless U.S. companies who will have to, among other things, review and update their underlying practices and contracts with 3rd party vendors, service providers, processors, and sub-processors to comply with the far-reaching new law—and avoid its potentially existential fines.
This webinar will explore how the GDPR, broadly-speaking, affects American companies that handle EU personal data and, specifically, how the law impacts vendor management and requires potentially significant updates of 3rd party contracts.
The event is sponsored by the California Lawyers Association’s IP Section’s Technology, Internet and Privacy Subcommittee which I chair. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.
This one-hour webinar will address key GDPR and vendor-related areas, including:
- Data breach notifications
- Data security requirements+ “appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data”
- Record-keeping obligations
- International data transfers
- Accountability and selecting vendors
- Negotiations, leverage, and data processing addenda
- Data controller/processor instructions and scope
- Terms for ensuring data processors’ assistance to the data controller in facilitating the rights of individuals
