April 25, 2018
02:00 PM (ET)
|Format||Live Web Seminar|
Practitioners who believe the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), set to go into effect in May 2018, won’t affect their practices and they can simply ignore them are in for a rude awakening. As international rules on these issues continue to change at a fast pace, U.S. immigration lawyers will need to navigate various country specific regulations (while concurrently complying with a panoply of U.S. federal and state laws) to ensure that they are in compliance on a global basis, and that client information is securely maintained.
- Overview of Key Data Privacy Rules, Including a Review of Basic Terms and Concepts
- Are Practitioners Subject to the GDPR If They Don’t Have an Office in the EU?
- How U.S. Immigration Attorneys May Unknowingly Become “Data Controllers” Under the GDPR
- Best Practices Immigration Lawyers Can Implement to Maximize Compliance
- What Sanctions Can U.S. Immigration Attorneys Face at Home and Abroad in Connection with the GDPR?
