ANA Legal & Regulatory Webinar: Early Lessons of the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive

This event is over.

The implementation of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation on May 25th ushered in a new era of data restrictions and data protection obligations for all industries, particularly digital advertising. Suddenly, European law had global effect and information that was not previously considered “personal” was transformed into regulated data. The industry response has been mixed, with some companies in the EU and U.S. taking compliance to the extreme while others are betting on a rule-of-reason approach. Meanwhile, consumers are flexing their new and updated rights.

In this webinar, you will learn from attorneys on the front lines of EU data protection compliance who will address:

  • Legal obligations imposed by GDPR, even on U.S. companies
  • Current thinking on “cookie walls”—blocking content if users do not consent to tracking
  • The latest guidance from EU regulators on foundational issues such as consent
  • Anticipated early legal battlegrounds and what to look for in the next 12 months
  • Early lessons learned from companies’ responses to GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive
  • Ripple effects on U.S. law and the data governance practices of U.S. companies
  • Potential effects on next-gen technologies such as AI and blockchain
