Europe has been debating the reform of its data protection regime since the first official draft of the Regulation was issued in 2012.

Recently, the process took a major step forward when the European Council agreed on its own negotiating position of the text on June 15, 2015. The European Parliament and the European Council are expected to agree on the final text of the Regulation by the Spring of 2016. Although the Regulation is still being debated, it is becoming increasingly clear which new data protection concepts will make it through and where tightening of existing rules will occur.

This web seminar will help businesses start designing the mechanisms, procedures and system changes they will need to implement to meet the data protection requirements of the Regulation; to understand where pain points are likely; and to follow the final phase compromises as the Regulation legislative process concludes from an informed position.

Topics will include:

  • the key changes the Regulation is expected to bring to the European data protection regime
  • the practical impact of those changes on the most common scenarios of collection, use and disclosure of personal data by United States businesses targeting EU residents or operating in the EU
  • the changes that are not yet settled
  • the process and timetable to finalization of the Regulation
