The new EU Data Protection Regulation - Be prepared!

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (also called the GDPR) has almost meandered its way through the legislative process and will probably enter into force early summer this year. With its increased obligations (and sanctions) for both data controllers and now also data processors, it is worth having a closer look at the consequences this will have for companies. The GDPR not just imposes new compliance steps but requires that data protection becomes a core topic in each enterprise, that it becomes part of each company’s DNA.

This seminar aims at providing companies enough information to help them to start preparing for the GDPR.

During the first part of this two-hour seminar we will provide an overview of the new requirements that will be imposed under the GDPR.

After a short lunch break, we will then focus first on the practical impacts of the accrued protection of individuals’ rights, by setting out the new obligations in terms of information to be provided, the new consent requirements, the right to be forgotten, etc. In the second part, we will look at the obligations replacing the former formalities with the CNPD (which will be abolished by the GDPR), notably regarding accountability, privacy by design, privacy by default, privacy impact assessments, etc.
