On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will commence, which represents the most significant overhaul of data protection laws anywhere in the world to date. It applies to law firms located within the EU and to firms outside the EU who are offering services to individuals in the EU. The GDPR also introduces a significant new sanctions regime, including very large fines, for non-compliance.
In this webinar, Rob Corbet and Olivia Mullooly will discuss what is the GDPR, how it will impact law firms within and outside the EU in their initial engagement of clients and what are law firms' ongoing obligations in protecting personal data in the course of the client relationship (including in the context of client relationship management and marketing systems).
Now available on the Lex Mundi web site is the Lex Mundi Global Data Privacy Guide. The guide draws on the expertise of our member firms and is a simple yet concise tool for clients who are looking to learn more about key data protection concepts and issues around the world. The guide includes an overview of the legislation in each jurisdiction along with the key data protection provisions. Its innovative format allows users to compare data privacy provisions from multiple jurisdictions in a side-by-side customizable report.
Additionally, Lex Mundi has created the Lex Mundi Cyber-Breach Rapid Reaction Force -- a global solution designed for clients who need to prepare for or respond to a cyber-breach.
If you have any questions about these resources, or would like to be added to the Rapid Reaction Force, please contact Lex Mundi Senior Business Development Manager, Kim Bradell.
