Implementation of GDPR ≠ Mission Impossible

10:00 – 11:00 – REGISTER HERE

We will focus on the actual data protection issues resulting from our experiences with practical implementation of GDPR in various business entities (from start-ups to corporations). We will show the common implementation problems and possible solutions with a model case-study that will be understandable also to non-lawyers. For example, we will discuss about some practical aspects of consents, cookies policies and processing of personal data on marketing purposes. We would like to also talk with participants about their questions and day-to-day experiences with GDPR.
