Export Compliance - GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Data Privacy

Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at 9:00 am

As part of their export plan, U.S. companies have to daily address export challenges about GDPR - Privacy in making shipments to mainly EU companies.  GDPR began as a European Data Protection Directive.  Businesses should consider two things when creating their GDPR privacy policy.  First, selling goods and services to EU residents means that a company is subject to the GDPR.  Businesses should create their GDPR policy before an EU individual becomes a customer.

Our presenter, Mr. Brandan Keaveny is an experienced international executive who will present in depth about GDPR and General Data Privacy issues and their impact on exporting.

This is the final portion of a 5 part export information series.
