Effective with the May 25, 2018 deadline, companies that store or process any data relating to European Union (EU) citizens are expected to be compliant with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To comply, a company must have in place GDPR-prescribed information system governance and privacy controls. Noncompliance can result in significant fines and penalties for businesses.

Join members of the Moss Adams information security team as they help business owners prepare for compliance with the global standard. During this session, presenters outline the fundamentals of the GDPR, explore the key compliance aspects of the regulation, and identify a foundational plan for addressing compliance.
