In this free two-part white paper brought to you by Wolters Kluwer, Baker Botts’ attorneys Cynthia J. Cole and Neil Coulson set out why Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) will impact domestic businesses as well as provide practical guidance to businesses on steps they can take to ensure compliance.
Data privacy experts see a troubling trend among American companies that collect, store, and analyze personal data: there is a lack of knowledge about how Europe’s GDPR will affect them. Few U.S. companies are making the big changes required to comply with this new law and many do not realize how GDPR may affect them and what happens if they are not compliant.
The risk of noncompliance could be severe. This white paper outlines practical steps a company can take now to minimize its risk.
