The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018 and requires that any company (European or international) doing business in Europe or handling personal data of EU residents comply with the new rules. The GDPR broadens the rights of individuals with respect to their personal data, mandates new approaches for industries collecting personal data and involves large penalties for violations, up to €20 million.
The GDPR focuses specifically on the criticality of protecting and appropriately managing personal data. For the hospitality industry, this means that businesses must focus more broadly on creating information security management policies and systems to prevent data loss or exfiltration, and ensure that their information security incidents can be identified, logged and reported. This requires a comprehensive understanding of how to handle and protect personal data in a secure, trustworthy manner.
This program, presented by Julie Negovan, Esq, Of Counsel at Griesing Law LLC, will distill 200+ pages of GDPR text into five (5) implementation phases, which every hospitality entity with a website needs to know. The course makes the long, complex guidelines of the GDPR relatable to hospitality attorneys of all kinds, and presents an easy-to-follow plan for non-experts in privacy or technology.

Good overview course on GDPR as it effects the Hospitality Industry!
Presenter had an excellent presence: clear, understandable and did not read from a script. Very good presentation.
The faculty was knowledgeable in the subject matter and provided a good presentation of the material.
Best course on GDPR that I have heard. Practical advice given was very helpful.
Thank you for the "mix" in sharing this CLE content. The video was a simple addition, but most presenters just talk to us instead of using all of the technology tools available, so THANK YOU! :) .
