The law, entitled General Data Protection Regulation, is commonly referred to as GDPR. Harvard has been preparing for the implementation of this legislation and is offering an overview for the research community of what is covered by this regulation, the impacts, and implementation plans. Presented by Mark Barnes and David Peloquin of Ropes & Gray.
