In this webinar we will address how to best accomplish compliance with GDPR and also understand how to assess risks and exposure specifically to American organizations and healthcare.


This lesson will be addressing the specifics on how American businesses and healthcare organizations need to quickly get on the task of compliance with the European Union's (EU) new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In addition, this webinar will address how to best accomplish compliance with GDPR and also understand how to assess risks and exposure specifically to American organizations and healthcare.

We will be going through a breakdown of what policies are necessary for compliance, new required consent forms, right of erasure, EU definition of sensitive data, duties of the Data Protection Office, and much more relating to how data is collected and the responsibilities of the American organization.

To continue to do business in the EU, most companies will have to implement additional privacy protections and adopt end-to-end data protection strategies.
