WCEE’s Lunch & Learn Series presents

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation:

Lessons Learned for Energy Industry

Remote Access / Webinar registration option available!


The EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect in May 2018. The data privacy regulation imposes new requirements on the handling of personal data in the EU and has extra territorial reach. The GDPR has had an unanticipated and far reaching impact on U.S. companies.

Join WCEE to hear from Cynthia Cole, Special Counsel at Baker Botts, as she discusses GDPR: the challenges and solutions that energy and power companies have faced in complying with the Regulation. Cynthia will also discuss how GDPR has spurred the US into greater privacy focus on both the state and federal level. And she will highlight the data privacy trends to look for in 2019.
