GDPR conference for the Adriatic region at Mokrice Castle on 12th and 13th April
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25th, however it is already causing turmoil in businesses and public institutions, partly because of the stricter framework of privacy protection, but mostly because of the massive penalties. The concerns are not minimised, since unfortunately the facts are that there’s a lack of data privacy knowledge across most businesses, especially SMEs, and even public service employees are not in their comfort zone. To make things even harsher, GDPR applies to all legal entities, from self-employed entrepreneurs to the largest corporations.
The conference most likely to answer the hardest questions about GDPR is called the 4th Days of Privacy and Freedom of Expression and will be held at the picturesque Mokrice Castle on the very border between Slovenia and Croatia, 12th and 13th April.
The conference will be eminent due to the extraordinary speakers and panellists in the program. The participants will have an opportunity to listen to, ask questions and mingle with some of the best experts in Europe and in the world. Among the distinguished speakers, we would like to especially mention Mr. Bruno Gencarelli, head of data information flows at the European Commission, Ms. Lorena Marciano, DPO for EMEA and Russia at Cisco, and Ms. Ann Cavoukian from Canada, a data privacy legend who coined the term »Privacy by Design«, now an everyday phrase in the GDPR vocabulary.
The program of the conference will satisfy experts in different fields, not only in the strict data privacy field, but also in the fields of law, marketing, informatics, public service and especially all future data protection officers who will need to implement GDPR in their organisations.
»GDPR finally gives every European citizen their privacy rights in practical terms, a great achievement for which all of us, privacy experts have been fighting for decades,« said dr. Nataša Pirc Musar, head of the conference program. All details about the conference are available at www.privacy-days.com.
