FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Netsurion, a leading provider of managed network connectivity, security and compliance solutions, today announced that it will present “Bracing for the Tidal Wave of Data Privacy Compliance in America,” a live-video webcast, on August 29th at 2 pm EDT. The webcast aims to inform businesses about the new and potential state-specific data privacy regulations spurred by GDPR and how it might affect business compliance.

Featured expert presenters are Billee McAuliffe, information technology lawyer with Lewis Rice Law Firm and John Ayers, vice president of Product Management with Netsurion.

With the current enforcement of GDPR, it is crucial for businesses to understand GDPR’s impact. Strict data privacy policy is not limited to only European customers and overlooking these regulations could be costly to business. Proactive states in the U.S. are taking their cues from the EU on how to embrace data privacy, but unlike the EU, businesses in the U.S. need to prepare for the possibility of managing compliance with 50 different state laws. Already, several U.S. states, including California, Colorado and Vermont, have passed new laws regarding data security. As enforcement of these laws go into effect and other states follow suit, inaction, could be proven detrimental.

In this webcast, participants will learn:

-- How quickly the U.S. is heading toward GDPR-like laws of its own -- Why giving up privacy for the sake of convenience is a thing of the past -- How the rules in California may apply to you and your business -- How to successfully embrace privacy and protect data -- How to make such compliance management bearable
