    11 days to GDPR - Are you ready?

    ATA Webinar Series Restart!!!

    Coming off a successful 44th Annual Conference in Orlando, ATA Board of Directors are reengaging the ATA webinar Series.  ATA announces its first 2018 webinar:

    Are you Ready for GDPR?

    GDPR takes effect May 25, 2018, and ATA is offering a webinar with experts from Steptoe & Johnson UK LLP who can help you understand how to approach the new European data regime.

    The GDPR makes many important changes to European Union (EU) data protection law, but it is not a complete departure from existing principles. Many of the concepts that organizations are familiar with will continue to apply under the GDPR. However, there are also some principal differences.

    In this webinar the Steptoe team will seek to address the questions of whether the GDPR will apply to your organization and if so, what immediate steps need to be taken to ensure compliance.

    Please join ATA and the Steptoe team on Monday, May 21st, 2018 at 11 am NYC/17:00 Belgium/16:00 England/9:00 am Alberta. 

    Free of charge to ATA members who can register here.

    We hope that you will be able to join us.
