About the Event:

Following the adoption of the GDPR, member states are currently reviewing their existing national data protection laws. Many of them will also have to reform their supervisory authorities. The GDPR’s influence even goes beyond the EU: some non-EU countries (eg. Switzerland) are currently also reviewing their data protection laws while keeping an eye on the GDPR. At the same time, there is great uncertainty about the solidity of the EU-US Privacy Shield and the EU approved model clauses (will they stand judicial scrutiny?) and about the privacy regulatory framework in the UK post-Brexit.

Meanwhile, most of the companies have started preparing for the GDPR. As our offices actively participate in these projects throughout the EU, now we can see the first practical issues and their proposed solutions. There is only one year left until 25 May 2018 - the “go-live” date - so it is time to discuss the existing experiences and the upcoming tasks.

Topics:

  • ongoing national legislative developments in Europe
  • the current status of the court challenges against the Privacy Shield and the model clauses
  • the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party’s guidance on the GDPR
  • current experiences of GDPR implementation projects
  • best practices for companies to update their internal procedures to comply with the GDPR
  • the most important data protection tasks to deal with until 25 May 2018
