Is GDPR a Four Letter Word? Demystifying the EU data privacy law and its impact on research

A free on-demand webinar to help your organization’s compliance with GDPR.

This free webinar will explore how GDPR data privacy regulations do not just apply to research-related organizations in the EU. The data protections cover all entities if they process personal data—not merely participant research data—that originates within the EU. Join this webinar to understand the regulatory impact of GDPR for your organization—including governance of data processing and sharing, data subject notice and informed consent, and interplay with US regulations. It will be crucial in contouring your research roadmap and operations more broadly to ensure compliance.

Key take-aways:

  1. Outline EU GDPR scope, key definitions and requirements, and regulatory impact on researchers and research organizations
  2. Evaluate operational implications of GDPR regarding protection parameters around informed consent, future research, research transparency, data processing and sharing, data transfer outside the EU, as well as business privacy policies and responsibilities
  3. Highlight GDPR requirements in contrast to US data privacy, security, and confidentiality regulations
  4. Offer potential solutions for updating policies, procedures, and practice for compliance with GDPR
