The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
18 May 2018 by DigiBC

Are you concerned about the GDPR which comes into effect on May 25, 2018?

What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation introduces new data protection obligations for businesses while providing increased data protection rights for data subjects. The GDPR also significantly increases fines for non-compliance. 
 

How does it affect our members?
The newly approved GDPR fundamentally changes the way organizations collecting data in the EU need to manage their people, policies, processes, and technologies. It is vital for organizations to understand how this new legislation will impact them and ensure they are equipped to properly manage privacy and data protection, and have the technical ability to do so.


How can DigiBC help?
DigiBC members are invited to participate in a phone call with a leading European interactive digital media lawyer assisting with GDPR compliance. This half hour Q&A will be scheduled for the end of May. Please contact brenda@digibc.org if you would like to participate or know more.
