General Assembly

About This Event

What is the GDPR and why should you care?

Mark Zuckerberg is testifying before Congress, MyFitnessPal’s information was recently hacked, and Europe has approved something called GDPR. What does this mean for you?

More importantly, how should this affect you?

General Assembly is partnering with global development firm DevResults to chat about your data, your privacy, and the obligations of organizations who have your data.

  • Should the D.C. government add a tax to Uber in order to pay for WMATA?
  • When a company’s data is hacked or used inappropriately, who is responsible?
  • Should a company be allowed to enforce a 20 page code of conduct? What about 100?

Global lead data science instructor Matt Brems and senior data scientist Ritika Bhasker will tackle these questions and much more.

And we want you to be part of the conversation.

In our inaugural installment of General Assembly’s “And You” series, don’t just listen to the experts. Chat with them. Learn with them. Solve problems with them.

Spend part of your evening tackling some of society’s most immediate problems while networking with peers and engaging with experts.
