I hope that you can join us for the International Privacy+Security Forum (April 3-5, 2019 in Washington, DC).
The International Privacy+Security Forum is an annual sister event to the Privacy+Security Forum, an annual event held in October at George Washington University in Washington, DC. The Int’l Forum event focuses on privacy and security laws from around the world. The main feature of Forum events is that we have deep-dive sessions on topics. We attract highly seasoned professionals, and we encourage highly interactive sessions.
We will have 100+ speakers and about 40 sessions.
Organizations are racing to get ready for the GDPR implementation date of May 25, 2018. Complete GDPR compliance in a few months is likely not feasible for many organizations, but this shouldn’t mean that these organizations should give up. Making a good-faith effort and continuing to strive to improve are quite worthwhile.
The GDPR Article 17 provides for a right to erasure — commonly known as the “right to be forgotten.” Data subjects may request that an organization erase their personal data “without undue delay” under a number of circumstances. These circumstances include when the data is no longer relevant to the purposes of collection, when consent is withdrawn and there is no other legal ground for processing, or when the data has been unlawfully processed, among other things.
I turned my short GDPR vignette about GDPR’s territorial scope into a cartoon. The GDPR applies not just to all EU organizations that process personal data. The GDPR also applies to non-EU established organizations that offer goods and services to EU citizens or that monitor behavior within the EU.
The GDPR thus has quite a long arm in its reach. Any organization, even those with no physical presence in the EU, can fall under the scope of the GDPR.
The International Privacy+Security Forum (February 26-27, 2018 in Washington DC) is next week.
The International Forum is a new annual sister event to the Privacy+Security Forum, an annual event held in October at George Washington University in Washington, DC. The regular Privacy+Security Forum will be in its 4th year in 2018. This past year, we had 800 participants.
Paul Schwartz and I created the International Forum to recognize the profound importance of international privacy and security law, not just abroad, but here in the United States.
We have 100 speakers and 30+ sessions.
