We’re excited to announce that on Thursday, November 2nd at 14:00 GMT, Taxlinked, in collaboration with the European Institute of Management & Finance in Cyprus, will host its next webinar, focusing on data protection in Europe and beyond.
This is a very timely subject considering that, come May 2018, Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will finally be enforced.
As you may know, this new rule wants to broaden the scope of the region’s data protection law to include all international firms handling EU residents’ data and bring greater consistency to Europe’s data protection regulations.
We have a great set of panelists ready to discuss the latest on GDPR and data protection across the globe, so make sure to book your seat today!
Submit Your Data Protection Questions
Data protection and privacy is a trending topic these days, especially considering the GDPR and all the compliance requirements being brought forth via its enforcement.
As financial practitioners, we’re sure you have plenty of questions on this new regulation and how to better protect your clients’ privacy.
Please remember that your questions drive our discussions, so we look forward to receiving them.
