General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 101 Seminar
March 28 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
In May of 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, and any companies that do business in Europe or who have customers in Europe must comply. Come hear from Tyler Johnson, Founder & CEO, PrivOps, as he discusses these regulations and how to implement them before being penalized.
Because of GDPR, the EU’s new data privacy law, up to 4% of global company revenue and unlimited liability is at stake for every US company with EU customer or employee data; execution is the primary risk. But GDPR can also represent an opportunity to create competitive advantage. Come learn more about PrivOps’ OntoSM Matrix data automation platform which represents a radically new approach to building software 10x faster without impacting existing systems. Let GDPR be more than just a risk to mitigate, make it the catalyst you need to create your version of a 21st century digital enterprise.
