About the Webinar

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data privacy regulation arising out of the European Union (EU). The GDPR was introduced by the EU to modernize and standardize the protection of personal data for all European residents. The regulation applies to all EU residents regardless of where their data is stored and/or processed globally. The GDPR also covers all personal data processed and/or stored within EU borders regardless of a data subject’s residency. This wide reaching regulation will impact a vast number of global enterprises.

Dun & Bradstreet began addressing the GDPR in April 2016 when the regulation was finalized and they are well underway toward completing their internal program in time for the May 2018 deadline.

In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:

  • GDPR Basics – Summary Information, Key Points and GDPR terms
  • The GDPR is replacing the current European Data Protection Directive. What’s changing and what’s not? What are the risks?
  • When and where does the GDPR apply?
  • What is within scope for the average global enterprise?
  • What has been Dun & Bradstreet’s approach toward preparing for the regulation?
