In early 2018, the European Union will replace its entire privacy framework with the GDPR, which governs any organization that processes the personal data of an EU citizen regardless of geographic location. GDPR has immediate ramifications for U.S. organizations, including those that do not have any affiliates or locations in the EU. We are hosting the first installment of a two-part breakfast series on GDPR focused on the key practical issues associated with implementation and avoidance of penalties. Mary Hildebrand and Matt Oliver, CIPP/US, will speak on a panel in our AVL Center that includes Linda Rush, CIPP/US/C, CIPM, Privacy Officer and Associate General Counsel, AvisBudget Group Inc.
