Subject: GDPR Tidal Wave Trend? 
Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018.  Many prepared for it, most feared it, some ignored it, and few understand it.  Did you know the GDPR has been adopted by non-European countries also?  Do you know what it protects? With potential fines of up to the greater of 4% of global revenue or 20 million Euros, it pays to understand a few fundamentals you can apply in your business.  This goal of this session is to put the GDPR in context and present a few of the hottest topics under the regulation.  We will wrap up with lessons learned in a recent GDPR breach reporting event and a look forward to the year 2020 when the new analogous California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 will go into effect.  Will GDPR jump the pond?
