On July 9, 2015, Hunton & Williams LLP hosted a webinar on the Proposed EU General Data Protection Regulation: Preparing for Change (Part 1). Hunton & Williams partner and head of the Global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice Lisa Sotto moderated the session, which was led by speakers Bridget Treacy, managing partner of the firm’s London office; Wim Nauwelaerts, managing partner of the firm’s Brussels office; and Jörg Hladjk, counsel in the firm’s Brussels office. Together the speakers presented an overview of the proposed EU General Data Protection Regulation, discussed expected changes from the existing Directive, and offered guidance on how to prepare for the next steps. The webinar was the first segment of a two-part series. Part II will be held later this year as negotiations continue to develop.
