The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most comprehensive reform in data privacy regulation in over 20 years. The new law seeks to give individuals robust control over their personal data and establish uniform data protection rules across all EU countries. If your business collects or processes the personal data of any individual within the Union, it is subject to GDPR no matter where your business is located. The regulation will impact businesses, including financial institutions, around the world. The regulation also has teeth, with the potential to impose fines up to 4% of your global revenue.
On May 25th, 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became effective in the European Union (EU). The GDPR establishes a number of new requirements on covered depository institutions that go beyond existing U.S. financial privacy and data security laws. Penalties for noncompliance with GDPR can range as high as 4 percent of your institution’s annual global revenue, or 20 million in euro, whichever is greater. In this webinar, we cover what GDPR is, who it affects, what key obligations it places on depository financial institutions, and how those obligations differ from existing U.S. laws.
