Impacts of Data Privacy Regulations on Business

September 18, 2018
1:00-2:00 p.m. ET

This webinar explores the current data privacy regulatory environment and the impact on business. We are seeing continued enhancements to overall data privacy regulations in a revolution to protect data. Changes in data privacy regulations and litigation outcomes may cause disruptions to current business activities and future planned activities. The impact of cybersecurity practices manifests themselves in recent SEC disclosures whereby promulgated regulations require enhanced cybersecurity disclosures and their impact on the company’s financial statements. Additionally, recently regulations are disruptive to business as prior businesses would have deferred compliance and pay the penalty rather than expend money to modify business practices and technology to comply with the new regulations. With increased fines the cost paradigm is shifting with the cost of compliance becoming less than the penalties inherent in these regulations.
