Terrance Barkan, one of the leading voices on international strategies for associations worldwide, will help you better understand GDPR, and what its implementation means for the future of Data Privacy in the U.S. Prepare for the challenges around GDPR and Data Privacy facing organizations today, and make the overwhelming more manageable for your organization.

The learning objectives from this session are:

  • Understand what it takes to be in compliance with the GDPR data protection regulations as a non-profit, mission-driven association
  • Learn some of the most common misunderstandings about GDPR regulations, and the difference between what is required and what is practical
  • Find out what’s on the horizon for data compliance in the United States
