General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): What Educational Institutions Across the U.S. Should Know

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): What Educational Institutions Across the U.S. Should Know
February 28, 2019

The GDPR is a major privacy law instituted by the European Union that has effects on institutions around the world, including those in the United States. If GDPR applies to your institution, actions such as creating data inventories, modifying privacy notices, instituting policies and procedures for handling data subject requests, and making changes to vendor contracts are key steps to ensure compliance. Higher education and K-12 institutions with study abroad, foreign exchange or online programs in place, or those considering implementing them, need to be knowledgeable of GDPR. It  is important to take some time to review and evaluate your institution’s response to-date and refresh what needs to be done to achieve or remain in compliance.

This presentation will provide information on the following questions:

  • How do I know if GDPR applies to my institution?
  • If GDPR does apply to my institution, what do I need to be doing?
  • What do I need to be mindful of when evaluating measures already taken to be in compliance with GDPR?
