EU General Data Protection Regulation

(90 minutes) A great deal of confusion is swirling around about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). With GDPR enforcement in full force (as of May 25, 2018) many higher education institutions are struggling with compliance. This webinar will focus on how to evaluate GDPR risk and build sustainable privacy programs using real world examples from higher education. Participants will benefit from a basic level understanding of the GDPR.

We recommend testing your browser as soon as possible in case you need to contact your IT department for help.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
