image icon Duration: 1 hour

The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) catalyzed significant changes to European privacy law when it became effective in May 2018. By now, the wide-sweeping, almost mystical, ramifications are becoming apparent. Beyond the EU, GDPR’s impact is far-reaching. So, it is vital for all research-related organizations to understand and analyze how this data privacy measure may impact their research activities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline EU GDPR scope, key definitions and requirements, and regulatory impact on researchers and research organizations.
  • Evaluate operational implications of GDPR regarding protection parameters around informed consent, future research, research transparency, data processing and sharing, data transfer outside the EU, as well as business privacy policies and responsibilities.
  • Highlight GDPR requirements in contrast to US data privacy, security, and confidentially regulations.
  • Offer potential solutions for updating policies, procedures, and practice for compliance with GDPR.
