Content of the conference

On 14 April 2016, the European Parliament approved the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Regulation on Data Protection, GDPR). It will replace national laws on the protection of personal data, in Slovenia the Personal Data Protection Act (ZVOP-1).

On 4 October 2017 the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Slovenia published a draft of the new Personal Data Protection Act (ZVOP-2), which will be harmonized with the new regulation, but will still regulate areas not covered by the regulation (for example, biometrics and video surveillance). Croatian Ministry for public administration announced the first draft of Personal Data Protection Act on February 22nd.

The most important novelties of the General Regulation are:
  • better control of citizens over their personal data and easier access to them, and more stringent regulation of the duty to inform the individual about the processing of his personal data;
  • the right to be forgotten or the right to erasure, and the right to data portability;
  • explicit (informed) consent for the processing of personal data, thus the companies will no longer be able to rely on the »alleged« consent;
  • compulsory notice of a breach into data collections within 72 hours;
  • the designation of a data protection officer within public authorities or bodies and companies engaged in risky data processing operations;
  • higher fines for infringements, since the supervisory authority will be able to impose a fine of up to 20.000,000 EUR or up to 4% of the company’s total worldwide annual turnover for the worst infringements.

At the conference, the lecturers will present the novelties brought by the new European regulations in the field of personal data protection, their meaning and they will also explain how to prepare for them. The GDPR is written technologically neutral, but it contains many additional requirements related to the safekeeping of data collections and rights of the individual, including in the field of IT. Therefore, both legal and technological aspects of the new legislation will be addressed.

Since, after the entry into force of the GDPR, the Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications should come into effect, which will regulate e-mail marketing and use of cookies, the attention will be paid to this content as well.
