General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Presented by: Cynthia Gates, JD, CIP, CCRP, Director of the IRB Administration at UC Davis


GDPR is a new privacy law implemented earlier this year, applicable to The European Union and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and the United Kingdom. Because it provides special protections for sensitive data, and information that can identify a person, there could be implications for your research.


  • Understand who is subject to compliance with GDPR.
  • Discuss how to comply with the GDPR.
  • Discuss the consequences of failing to comply with the GDPR.

SOCRA Members receive 1.0 continuing education unit for attending.
