DPOs updated on novelties in data protection

26. 6. 2019 – The Office organized another two seminars for DPOs in June. It was a follow up to the successful series of the past and the beginning of the current year. The central topic was the Czech legislation adapting the GDPR as well as some novelties which this piece of legislation has brought about.

The Tuesday seminar kicked off with data transfers to third countries or to international organizations. Mr David Burian, head of the division of accreditation and data transfers, explained the main principles and definitions. He also approached transfers based on adequacy decisions, binding rules or relevant exemptions.Vanda Foldová

Ms Vanda Foldová, head of the supervisory department, introduced new aspects related to administrative sanctions. She emphasized the individualization of fines which pursuant the GDPR should be effective, proportionate and dissuasive. 

Moreover, detection of a breach does not necessarily mean penalization. The office can impose a noon-financial remedial measure. “We take into consideration the nature, gravity and duration of the breach as well as the fact whether it was intentional or by negligence and if the controller has already taken steps to mitigate the damage. We also note the way we learned about the breach and if it occurred for the first time. Of course, we take very much into account the level of the controller´s cooperation in the effort to find remedy.” said Ms Foldová.
