GDPR is Coming! Are You Ready?

, Doug Davidson (GBQ) + Ellen Bloch (GBQ)
Kegler Brown

We invite you to join us on Thursday, May 24th (the day before GDPR goes into effect!), for a panel discussion regarding important and timely information that will help ensure your business is ready for the new regulations and help you with compliance going forward.

With the GDPR’s broad implications for EU and U.S.-based businesses alike, this seminar may be your last chance to find out if it applies to you before it goes into effect on May 25th. Our global business attorneys and experts from GBQ will provide an overview of GDPR, including steps to take to gain compliance, an understanding of consent and the right to be forgotten, and the requirements for breach notification and incident response.

Join us after for a happy hour and networking!
