Join our webinar where we’ll provide information on the current political landscape in the EU, its relationship with the UK since the signing of the Trade & Cooperation Agreement with the EU and how that is impacting supply chains for U.S. companies. We’ll also discuss further developments in the UK-EU trading and political relationship since the signing of the landmark agreement and how and why companies should proactively prepare for compliance issues associated with the UK and its data privacy regulatory changes that will occur in mid-2021.  
In the wake of the EU and the UK split, companies worldwide grappled with challenges to all aspects of their businesses. At the forefront of those challenges were supply chains and data privacy. How, and to what extent, supply chains within the UK’s borders are impacted is an ongoing concern. While some leaders have prepared for the ensuing supply chain disruption, data privacy and the high fines for non-compliance with GDPR in the EU, have steadily become another prominent concern. It’s recommended that U.S. companies act now to understand how Brexit will impact the collection and storage of data, especially personal data. Join our webinar where we’ll provide information on the current political landscape in the EU, its relationship with the UK since the signing of the Trade & Cooperation Agreement with the EU and how that is impacting supply chains for U.S. companies.
