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).
- 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.
