The Basics of GDPR for Researchers


Monday, April 1, 2019 · 1:30-2:30 pm EDT
Location: Your office or conference room (no need to travel!)


How does the European Union’s new privacy regulation impact your data? When does General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply to your research study? What are your obligations?

Mark your calendar for a FREE webinar from three legal experts who will provide an overview of the key terminology used in the GDPR, the territorial scope of the regulation and the obligations it places on different parties in the research enterprise. Over the course of a fast-paced hour, you’ll:

  • Understand the territorial scope of the GDPR
  • Gain fluency with the key terminology used by GDPR, including terms like personal data, pseudonymization and anonymization
  • Familiarize with the bases for processing personal data in clinical research
