What does it mean for companies in Singapore?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that is designed to protect the personal data of all European Union (EU) citizens and reshape the way organisations approach privacy will take effect on 25 May 2018.

The GDPR will apply to organisations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the EU, regardless of the company’s location. Organisations found to be in breach of the GDPR can be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover, capped at €20 Million.

Join us for this presentation where we will analyse the legal and operational aspects of the GDPR and how you can prepare ahead in this increasingly complex data protection landscape.
