Peter Guffin to Participate in GDPR Conference at University of Maine School of Law’s Information Privacy Summer Institute

Pierce Atwood Privacy & Data Security Practice Group Chair Peter J. Guffin will moderate a panel during this upcoming CLE conference, The EU’s GDPR – Impacts and Opportunities for New England Businesses.

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, already is having a major business impact on New England organizations doing business in Europe. Organizations of all types – large and small, for-profit and nonprofit – are facing new, significant regulatory compliance risks and operational challenges arising out of the GDPR.  At the same time, however, the GDPR is also creating new business opportunities for organizations, as they offer expertise, technical tools, and even market differentiation based on their GDPR sophistication. This one-day program will address the major business risks – and opportunities – for New England organizations doing business in Europe.

The Maine Law School is partnering with Pierce Atwood and IAPP (International Association of Privacy Professionals) to present this conference on June 1, 2018. Registration is open to lawyers and non-lawyers. Maine attorneys who complete this course will receive 4.5 CLE credits. Please visit Maine Law for more information and registration instructions.
