GDPR Update for Global Organization

Monitor the Latest Regulatory Developments so Your Data Capture and Collection Processes Ramain Compliant

Philadelphia, PA, United States

Remaining compliant to the new GDPR regulations can be a daunting task that can lead to fines as well as damaged organization reputation. The quantity and detail of personal data (like individual biometric readings, information about health history or current health, etc.) collected during a clinical trial make it particularly important that companies prepare to comply with GDPR. While these regulations originate in the EU, any life science organizations engaging in global business must prepare and stay compliant as the regulation continues to evolve forcing organizations to adapt.

U.S. companies who do business with EU residents will be a direct subject to GDPR, as their customers exist under the protections of GDPR. These collaborators and contractors, such as CROs running clinical studies, are required to seek contractual commitments to help them achieve compliance with the GDPR.

Top Five Reasons to Attend

  1. Navigate GDPR from a global perspective to ensure intelligible consent
  2. Establish a strong internal and external SOP to ensure compliance
  3. Learn documentation and right to access standards

  5. Preparing for potential data breaches or concerns
