GDPR & Data Protection Officer
The new European Regulation called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces a revolutionary change to data protection in the European Union. The final version of GDPR was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 27 April 2016 under number 2016/679, coming into effect on 25 May 2018. Fines for GDPR non-compliance can be up to 4% of total annual income, or 20 million euros.
Our law firm also organizes lectures on GDPR at conferences for schools, where our experts talk about their practical experience in the role of the Data Protection Officer. We also train the Data Protection Officers. Our views and opinions are regularly published in magazines and periodicals specific to GDPR. We also cooperate regularly with the Office for Personal Data Protection and professional publishing houses.
We have successfully advised on and implemented GDPR compliance for private and public entities, especially schools and educational institutions, travel agencies, online retailers, developers, operators of internet applications, and the automotive industry.
We also provide the services of a Data Protection Officer for public entities such as municipalities and schools, and for private entities such as travel agencies and hospitals. At the moment we are acting as the Data Protection Officer for more than 30 entities.
In providing legal services, we use our extensive network of friendly European law firms, with whom we share our knowledge and experience.
