On 16 June 2017, the first block of lectures concerning preparation for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) marked the start of the GDPR Academy which is organized by the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic under professional guarantee by the Office for Personal Data Protection and other experts.
The seminar took place in the full conference hall at the Ministry of Industry and Trade and was dedicated to the new obligations, opportunities, and risks related to GDPR, namely from the managerial point of view.
The speakers also approached the issue of auditing the existing duties as well as ways of handling personal data in organizations.
