The event sheds light on the more in-depth implications of the GDPR on the business activity, underlining the way that compliance with GDPR must take into account potential liability under competition regulations.

Attend the event and get clear answers and examples on the following issues, among others:

  • The competition risks attached to the portability right and what to do to avoid such risks. Philipp Werner will explain how GDPR and antitrust intersect.
  • How to better face the challenges triggered by running a data inventory and data mapping or a data protection impact assessment within your company and what you must take into account. Gert Maton will provide real examples and solutions to the problems corporations encounter when running a data inventory and data mapping or a data protection impact assessment.
  • What are the circumstances under which data processors risk being qualified as data controllers and what to do to avoid the risk. Jörg Hladjk will provide insights into this by sharing concrete case-law.
  • What criteria are to be taken into consideration when applying the fines and if the fines will be applied mandatorily in all cases - Oana Luisa Dumitru, ANSPDCP
