Webinar on DPO and GDPR for APTLD

31 October 2018


When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2018, European citizens gained significant protections over how their personal data is used worldwide. This “long arm” legal effect means that any ccTLD, wherever they are based, is now subject to the GDPR if they accept registrations from within the EU. The GDPR provides for sanctions of up to Euro 20m for non-compliance.

In the webinar "The ccTLD Data Protection Officer and Compliance with GDPR: Lessons from Nominet", Mr. Nick Wenban-Smith, the Data Protection Officer of NOMINET, a leading European ccTLD registry, will explain how in practice a European ccTLD registry handles compliance with GDPR obligations, with specific emphasis on the role of the Data Protection Officer. Nick will highlight some of the myths and rumours about GDPR, and help guide APTLD members towards compliance without undue expense or inconvenience.

Members are encouraged to participate in the webinar which will be held at 8am UTC to 9am UTC on 20 November 2018.
