In less than 10 days, the European Union will begin enforcing its General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will apply to any company that collects, processes, or uses EU-origin personal data, regardless of where the company is located. Though many of our readers are focused on HIPAA, some engage engage in activities that may trigger the GDPR, or they may have future aspirations to expand their business into the EU. Fortunately for our readers, our colleague Cynthia Larose has been relentlessly covering the GDPR at Privacy & Security Matters, and recently published a refresher list of webinars on GDPR issues related to contracts, human resources data, data transfer and more.
After waking to news that the UK had voted to leave the EU, our London-based colleague Susan Foster provided insight on what the Brexit will mean for UK data protection laws.

Privacy and Security Matters also provides further perspectives on EU data protection law here.
