The speakers for this event are Alston & Bird attorneys Peter Swire and Karen Sanzaro. This session will cover the following topics:
Brexit: Peter will provide brief thoughts and guidance on the recent Brexit vote in the UK and its potential impact as companies implement the GDPR.
Outsourcing & Processor Management under the GDPR: For controllers of personal information, the GDPR will require substantial upgrades to contractual arrangements with processors as well as due diligence in the selection of processors and continuing oversight of processing activities. For processors, the GDPR will similarly require greater attention to contract terms and will impose new, express compliance requirements. Most significantly, controllers and processors will become jointly responsible for information security and exposed to fines and civil damages for violations, with penalties that can reach 4 percent of a firm’s global revenue. This webinar will explain the changes in law and discuss how organizations should adjust their outsourcing and contractual programs to respond to the new requirements.
The series is co-chaired by Jim Harvey, co-chair of our Privacy & Security Practice, and Peter Swire, senior counsel. Other speakers from the firm and community will join us throughout the series.
