DRI Offers General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Guide Free to the Public

May 25th is the deadline for compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. As a public service, DRI–The Voice of the Defense Bar is offering its guide to the hefty requirements of the GDPR and how to meet them. Published in February 2018, the publication was produced by DRI’s Center for Law and Public Policy.

Titled “What Is GDPR? If You And Your Clients Are Still Asking That On May 25, 2018, You May Have a Serious Problem” the guide explains the long reach of the regulation (it’s global), the serious and expensive preparation required for it, and the hefty financial penalties (up to 20 million Euros) for non-compliance.

The regulation applies to anyone who offers goods and services in the EU, or gathers, processes, stores, or uses data on EU citizens.

The guide in its entirety may be found here.
