GDPR Seminar: Impact of the new regulation on content and collaboration

30 May 2017

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant change to European Union (EU) privacy law in decades. GDPR requires that organizations protect personal data – no matter where it is sent, processed or stored. Compliance with GDPR will be challenging for most organizations, as it encompasses stricter procedures related to personal data collection, processing and storage, cybersecurity and breach notifications, cross-border data transfers, appointment of data protection officers, to name a few.

Join our lunch seminar on 30 May in Heverlee (Leuven) and let our experts and guest speakers guide you through the principles of GDPR and its impact on your organization's content and collaboration flows.
