The EU General Data Protection Regulation: Key Guidance for Life Sciences Companies

December 1, 2016

GDPR: Key Guidance for Life Sciences Companies from DataGuidance on Vimeo.

Sidley, in conjunction with DataGuidance, is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and what it means for the life sciences industry.

Intended to standardize data protection measures across the EU, the new GDPR will significantly impact life sciences companies in Europe and around the world that collect European citizens’ data. One particularly important change introduces potential fines for noncompliance of up to 4% of annual worldwide turnover.

While the GDPR will not officially become law until mid-2018, businesses can begin taking steps to prepare for it now. In this webinar our panel will focus on practical guidance to help life sciences companies effectively and efficiently plan for the GDPR, including:

  • Understanding the GDPR’s new requirements and the practical impact they will have on the life sciences industry
  • How to manage a GDPR compliance project in practice
  • A checklist of actions life sciences companies will need to take in order to maintain GDPR compliance
