Compliance: Where Privacy & Records Management Intersect

Social Networking Event

Michael DeVanna, Enterprise Records Manager & Farrell Wilkerson, Senior Corporate Counsel

Please join in a happy hour, meet ‘n mingle, social networking event at The Cheesecake Factory.  As the records management landscape has transitioned from a “nice to have” to a “need to have” with enactment of privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), let’s connect with local members of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (“IAPP”) and share with our privacy counterparts how a records management program rooted in best practices is essential to a credible, compliant privacy program.  “Privacy Professionals, meet Records Managers!”
