Application of EU Data Protection Laws in Australia

  • 02 Jul 2018
  • 17:30 - 19:30
  • Bird & Bird, at Level 11, 68 Pitt Street, Sydney


Registration is closed

Please join us on Monday evening, 02 JULY 2018,  at the offices of Bird & Bird at Level 11, 68 Pitt Street Sydney for an update on recently changed data protection laws in the EU, which is likely to affect many Australian businesses. Drinks and food will be served from 5:30 pm for a seminar start time of 6:00pm.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR) contains new data protection requirements which came into effect last month. Australian businesses with an establishment in the EU, that offer goods and services in the EU, or that monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU, may need to comply.

In this seminar the presenters will outline some of the key elements of the GDPR, and why it is relevant to businesses in Australia.
