The May 25 European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) has many companies scrambling to become compliant. To assist area businesses to better understand their cybersecurity responsibilities and threats, Grand Rapids law firm Mika Meyers is hosting a free lunch & learn on July 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Watermark Country Club. 

The GDPR requires that all US businesses controlling or processing personal data of European Union residents (whether or not the U.S. business has a physical presence in the EU) address a number of requirements.  Depending on the circumstances, these requirements may include performance of an assessment of the business’ lawful rights to control and process the personal information, acquisition of consent from affected individuals before collecting their personal data, implementation of data protection and retention measures, appointment of a data protection officer, and adoption of a breach response plan.  Noncompliant businesses are subject to heavy penalties and fines.

That topic, and others, will be addressed at the event. Specific topics and presenters include: 

Cyber Security Legal Issues Business Leaders Need to Know – presented by Jennifer Puplava of Mika Meyers

Cyber Liability & Data Breach Coverage – presented by Harold Burrell of Lighthouse Insurance

Cybersecurity: Today’s Threats and Mitigations – presented by Jessica Dore of Rehmann

Attendees will receive a checklist that can be used in the event of a data breach, as well as a free lunch.  Space is limited. To RSVP for this event, please email Marcia Ritzenhein at [email protected] or call 616-632-8096.


Location Watermark Country Club
Cost is free and includes lunch. For more information, contact Marcia Ritzenhein at 616 632-8000.
