General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Workshop: ​​

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive and sweeping privacy law that applies to entities that handle the personal data of individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA). Its scope is more expansive and its requirements different than most US privacy laws, such as FERPA or HIPAA. It impacts many campus activities, including collaborative research, recruiting, and fundraising. This session is recommended for those who have completed either Privacy @ UC San Diego or the Privacy 101 workshop and handle personal data of individuals within the EEA. ​ This workshop is held semi-annually via Zoom.

  • Tuesday, June 6, 2023: 2:00-3:30PM (Pacific Time)
  • Tuesday, November 7, 2023 11:00AM-12:30PM (Pacific Time)
