Womble Bond Dickinson Partner Katie Hyman will be a panelist for two global panels for Onetrust, both of which will discuss the effects of General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) over the course of the last five years in both the retail and tech sectors. 

The first panel, “GDPR and Retail: Building Customer Loyalty and Trust with Consent and Privacy” was held on May 23. The panel discussed how GDPR laws have affected the retail and e-commerce industry, how these laws commanded a change in global retail and e-commerce operations, and how new regulations continue to impact the industry.  

The second panel, “GDPR and Tech: Key Considerations of Privacy by Design and AI in Tech”, is scheduled for May 25. The panel will share how GDPR has impacted the tech industry and how future regulations will affect operations of tech companies globally in the future.
