You will hear updates on economic sanctions, new export controls, new regulations impacting foreign investment in the United States (CFIUS), Section 301 and Section 232 punitive tariffs on foreign-made imports, the USMCA that is to replace NAFTA, and the U.S.-China trade dispute. There will be ample time for your questions.

GDPR is a serious new data privacy law that impacts all businesses that market to, operate in, or are accessible from countries in the European Union — its wide, sweeping rules effect almost every company in the US and are setting the precedent for new domestic legislation. The pending data privacy law proposals in Washington State are making secure and compliant data practices essential. In this webinar, GRAYBOX’s founder and principal, Paul Weinert, will cover the impacts, options and approaches for how to keep your business in legal compliance, avoid major fines and stay agile with changing market demands.
