January 10, 2018

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU’s new regulation governing the collection, processing, use, and storage of personal data, which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018. O’Melveny’s Data Security and Privacy lawyers explore issues that arise for organizations preparing for GDPR compliance in “Five Months Until GDPR Enforcement: Addressing Tricky Questions and Answers” in the Cybersecurity Law Report

For a more in-depth discussion of the GDPR’s requirements, O’Melveny’s GDPR Toolkit explains the law’s requirements and lays out 12 steps you can take to comply with the GDPR before the enforcement date. Our lawyers also can provide specific counseling on the application of the law to your company.
