In 2018, EU General Data Privacy Requirements (GDPR) will extend scope of EU data protection law to all foreign companies processing data of EU residents. For pharma companies, CROs, and others involved in the clinical development process, violations of the new regulation can result in fines up to $10 million Euros or 2% of the organization's worldwide revenue. The US and the EU have entered into a vexed relationship regarding data protection and privacy, Privacy Shield. The panel will discuss current privacy regulations in the US and how the GDPR relates to US privacy initiatives, including HIPAA and ONC regulations and proposed legislation in the US Congress.

Learning Objectives

Discuss EU GDPR; Describe the US government privacy and data protection requirements; Discuss issues related to these two frameworks for protecting PII.
