The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which updated how the European Union (EU) regulates data privacy, was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union in April of 2016.

The new regulation doesn't just impact countries in the European Union. It also applies to any company that does business in the EU or with EU citizens; or any company that owns a website that is accessible to EU citizens if that website collects personal data, such as email addresses, IP addresses, or cookies.

In other words, it is highly likely the new regulation impacts your business, and thus, highly possible you will need to make dramatic changes to how your company treats personal data by the May 25, 2018 compliance deadline.

On January 23, 2018, McLane Middleton attorney Cameron Shilling, chair of the firm's Privacy and Information Security Group, will discuss how businesses are impacted by this new regulation, and what you need to do to get your company in compliance.
