Course Demo. No credit provided in demo mode.
Faculty: Russell Jackman, Esq. -
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). California passed a similar bill called The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. The GDPR creates "Data Controllers" and "Data Processors" and protects "PII," or Personally Identifiable Information. This program helps attorneys understand the GDPR, protection of client data and what advice to provide businesses, particularly those with business interests in the EU. Mr. Jackman discusses the appointment and role of a Data Protection Officer, the rights of the data subject, compliance regulations, data breaches, and potential sanctions for failure of U.S. to follow the GDPR framework, as GDPR is applicable as long as the organization stores personal data of EU citizens.
Under GDPR personal data is any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer's IP address. With privacy rights a major legal issue, this program provides an ideal way to understand the issues and requirements in general and GDPR in particular.
