GDPR Conference

GDPR Info Session

Published on: May 31, 2018
May 25th 2018 marks the entry into force of the European Union’s General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR), a law that will advance rights of EU data subjects and improve privacy protection online.
This new EU legislation applies to all companies in the world that are processing the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location. Meaning to say that even businesses outside of the EU that are offering goods or services to anyone living within the EU will also need to ensure they're compliant with the new rules & regulations, as they could also be subject to hefty fines of European Authorities/ Data Protection Authorities up to €20 Million or 4% of the annual global turnover or (whichever is greater).

As a lot of the businesses on our island are dealing with EU customers – one may think of the residents of Saint Martin (Fr.) & the Netherlands -, we believe that it’s important to create more awareness about this new legislation. We would therefore like to invite you to an info session and Q & A on the GDPR. We will provide more information on the potential implications of the EU GDPR for businesses on St. Maarten.

Date: Friday, June 1st 2018
Time : 2.30pm – 4.30pm
Place: Emmaplein Building (Former Maduro Office, Next to Jump Casino & PWC)
Keynote Speaker: Mr. Giovanni M. King – Electronic Communications Regulatory Expert

Please RSVP by before June 1st 2018.
