Update your vendor agreements to comply with GDPR
In a bylined article, Technology Transactions partner Rebecca Eisner and associate Lei Shen discuss some of the issues to consider as you review your vendor agreements for GDPR compliance. For example, you may need to appoint a data protection officer, depending on the types of processing your company conducts.
But another important and potentially time-consuming step that you need to complete is the review of your agreements with third-party vendors that will have access to your EU personal data to ensure those agreements comply with the GDPR.
Even if your agreements already comply with the EU Data Protection Directive, you may still need to update those agreements to meet the new requirements of the GDPR.
