European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation information session

Did you know the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has the potential to affect universities in the U.S.?

The GDPR aims to protect the personal information of individuals in the EU by placing specific requirements on how organizations collect and process personal data. Because Case Western Reserve University collects and uses data of EU applicants, donors and research collaborators, the university may be subject to the GDPR requirements.

The Compliance Office invites staff and faculty to attend this an upcoming information session to learn more about how to collect and manage personal information consistent with GDPR standards. This session will be held Wednesday, Sept. 19, from noon to 1 p.m. in Adelbert Hall’s Toepfer Room.
