Free webinar to focus on General Data Protection Regulation

SMITHFIELD – The Rhode Island Manufacturers Association will will host a free webinar on Thursday, Jan. 17, from 11:30 a.m. to noon. The session, sponsored by Vertikal6 Inc., is called “GDPR: Does it Apply to Me and If So, What Does That Mean?”

The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, sets up strict global privacy requirements regarding management and protection of personal data while still respecting individual choice.

“You’d be surprised how many companies in the U.S. fall under GDPR requirements. You may be one of them,” the manufacturing association said in a statement.

The webinar will address GDPR basics, getting started with GDPR compliance and key provisions, as well as its overlaps with existing frameworks. GDPR Security of Data Processing will also be discussed.
