The International Trade Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce will be holding a roadshow throughout the spring. This roadshow will be to educate U.S. businesses on how to prepare for Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR as well as the existing Privacy Shield framework. The details can be found below.
What U.S. Exporters Need to Know
Do you have customers, clients or employees in Europe? Are you interested in selling to customers in Europe in the future? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, join us and learn how the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may impact your business when it comes into force in May 2018. Failure to comply with the GDPR could result in stiff fines as high as 4 percent of your company’s overall revenue.
The U.S. Department of Commerce will offer a half-day program to inform and help U.S. companies prepare. Speakers include Isabelle Roccia, Policy Advisor, U.S. Mission to the European Union and Michelle Sylvester-Jose, Privacy Shield Advisor, U.S. Department of Commerce.
