The Global Reach of GDPR: (Part I) The Long Arm of the New EU Data Protection Jurisdiction

A Steptoe-sponsored webinar
December 6, 2017

Please join Steptoe on December 6 for the first in a series of webinars discussing the key issues for your business when the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25, 2018. Under the GDPR, EU data protection law will, for the first time, apply directly to many US and other foreign companies that target the EU market from abroad. Our first webinar will discuss the extra-territoriality of the GDPR and provide insights on the topic from the European Commission. Participation is free of charge.

The GDPR brings antitrust-scale penalties for non-compliance and an impact on global regulation and the digital economy which will call for a significant overhaul of your business ecosystem.


Date: Wednesday, December 6

5:00 - 6:00 pm CET
