General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Watermark Properties | Hosted By: Crowe Horwath, ADP and Warner Norcross & Judd

You are invited to join Crowe Horwath LLP, Warner Norcross, and ADP for a roundtable discussion on GDPR – managing data privacy in the global environment. GDPR sets a new standard for the ways personal information about individuals must be protected. Data subjects are entitled to know how their data will be processed and data controllers must be able to provide evidence of GDPR compliance. Companies are taking steps to assess their environment and close the gaps to ensure they meet those requirements which become effective in May 2018. Pam Hrubey, Crowe Horwath, Managing Director,  prior chief privacy officer and privacy compliance specialist, Wes Rihani, ADP Area Product Leader for Global Enterprise Solutions and, Norbert Kugele, Partner, Warner Norcross & Judd will moderate the roundtable covering these topics:
  • General compliance obligations
  • Accelerating compliance and practical steps
  • Prioritizing compliance efforts – maximizing strengths, addressing weaknesses
  • Role of internal audit

For additional information on achieving a relevant, practical approach to compliance, read our thought leadership  “Jump Start Your Way To A Successful GDPR Implementation” in Finance Monthly.
