WEBINAR: Understanding The New GDPR

Event Details

DATE: Thursday, May 10, 2018
TIME: 3:00pm EDT

This webinar will be conducted by Jeff Ment, Founder & Managing Partner of The Ment Law Group.

With the looming implementation date (May/25/18) rapidly approaching for the GDPR – it will be very important for our members that serve EU customers to stay compliant and avoid the virtual nightmare for non-compliance.

This webinar will help you understand the new regulation in the European Union (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR) that demands organizations to protect personal information of EU residents whether living in the EU or abroad.

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect on May 25, 2018, and requires your organization to stay compliant with the storage and management of personal data of EU citizens. If you have a web presence where you promote products and services and collect personal data from EU residents, you are subject to GDPR. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE YOUR COMPANY IS LOCATED. This webinar will help you evaluate:


  • What you need to do first to comply with GDPR, and the next steps
  • If your business is required to have a data protection officer
  • The processes you need in place to respond to requests to delete, amend, or provide copies of data
  • The need for an incident response plan that meets GDPR requirements
  • How you can ensure compliance across all platforms including vendors using data transfer mechanisms
