You will learn how to develop and implement a global data privacy compliance program. 

This session is designed for U.S.-based HR professionals with a strong understanding of U.S. data privacy rules and who have general responsibility for management of issues related to the global workforce. We will discuss how to manage the significant requirements imposed abroad against the broad and frequently varied rules here in the U.S. A primary objective will be to highlight the HR-related issues associated with employee privacy against your interests, as well as the protection of company trade secrets and confidential information. This session will provide an overview of:

  • The compliance obligations in many jurisdictions, including the EU, Canada, Mexico, Brazil as well as other nations.
  • Common U.S. practices that can create compliance issues in many other jurisdictions, providing practical information to reduce risk.
  • Various components necessary for consideration when facing the strategic requirements to a compliant global data privacy policy.
