The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on May 25th 2018.  This has far reaching implications for any organization that controls or processes personal data related to EU residents.

LSPs, regardless of their geographic location, need to prepare for GDPR if they have any employees, freelancers, or clients that are EU residents. And, even if none of the above conditions are present, GDPR will apply if an LSP is translating documents that contain any data or meta data that relates to an EU resident. This webinar will cover the four pillars of GDPR preparation, Discover, Manage, Protect, and Report, and step through LSP relevant scenarios for each. In addition the webinar will provide an overview of the different tools that are available to help LSPs monitor and manage compliance with GDPR.
