On the 28th of September at 10am ET, IAB Europe will hold the first in a series of webinars on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the new EU data protection law which will come into force on the 25 May, 2018. Since the beginning of the year, IAB Europe has been working with members in their GDPR Implementation Working Group (GIG) on figuring out how the GDPR will apply to our industry, and on drafting industry-specific guidance. The NAI has been an active participant in the IAB's GIG.
The first output of the GDPR Implementation Working Group was a paper named the GDPR Compliance Primer - a document which explains the first steps which companies have to undertake to achieve compliance. The work was lead internally by Michele Appello from Improve Digital, who will also be presenting this first webinar on the topic alongside her colleague Vaughan Mackolisky. Registration for the webinar is possible here:
The purpose of this webinar series is to externalize the work of the GDPR Implementation Working Group. The webinars are therefore not meant to be too legal and technical. In particular, this first one is meant to be an introduction to the GDPR - so no prior knowledge is required! The webinars will follow a monthly schedule, and the intention is to carry them through into 2018.
Please feel free to contact Chris Hartsuiker of IAB Europe or NAI staff if you have any further questions about the webinar series, or the GDPR Implementation Working Group.
