We will provide practical guidance on the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) requirements, which will carry the most severe potential penalties we have ever seen in the data privacy area.  Certain penalties could potentially be the greater of €20M or 4% of annual worldwide revenues.  Although GDPR does not kick in until 2018, early compliance preparations are essential due to the scope and nature of the requirements.
