WEBCAST TODAY: @InternetSociety Webinar – #GDPR: Novelties, Challenges and Opportunities #shapetomorrow

LivestreamToday, Thursday February 22 2018 at 1pm ET (18:00 UTC) the Internet Society Livestream Channel presents a webcast of Internet Society Webinar: GDPR: Novelties, Challenges and Opportunities earlier today. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is going to enter into force on 25 May 2018 will bring fundamental changes to the Privacy and Data Protection scene on a global level. GDPR aims to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower data privacy of EU citizens and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. The expected global impact of GDPR has triggered a worldwide discussion and many organizations both within and outside the EU are currently busy getting ready for 25 May, to make sure they are in compliance with the GDPR, while there is still an ongoing debate on many provisions. This Internet Society webinar provided our community with a better understanding of the big picture when it comes to GDPR, its global impact, novelties, challenges and opportunities. Speakers: Bojana Bellamy, President, Centre for Information Policy Leadership; Prof. Joe Cannataci, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy; Olivier Iteanu, Founder and Managing Partner, Iteanu Avocats; Nevena Ruzic, Assistant Secretary General at Information Commissioner Serbia. Moderator: Ceren Unal, Internet Society European Regional Bureau. The webcast will also be available on Facebook and will have open captioning.
