What does the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) mean for the U.S.?

  • 2226 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

The GDPR is coming.

In less than a month, American companies processing data of European Union’s citizens and individuals living in the EU will be subject to the General Data Protection Regulation, which impacts how data about consumers can be collected, used, store, and shared.

In this panel, an expert from the European Union will present details about the GDPR, how it was conceived, and how it will be implemented, as well as how it might be replicated in the United States in the wake of the controversy over Facebook and Cambridge Analytica. We’ll also hear from industry representatives who are preparing for the GDPR as well as start ups who may not be impacted today but need to prepare for tomorrow’s growth.
