On 7 November 2014 the Czech Data Protection Authority
hosted international workshop on processing of personal data in relation to detection
and investigation of corporate fraud. The workshop partner was the bnt
attorneys-at-law s.r.o. company. The workshop participants were representatives
from several data protection authorities (Poland, Estonia, FYROM, Montenegro,
Albania, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina) as well as from international
companies dealing with corporate fraud investigation and also from private
companies combating unfair practices on thein own.
The workshop agenda ranged
from practical issues related to fight on corporate fraud and its privacy
implications (morning session) to whistle blowing (afternoon session) and was
followed by a vivid discussion. Finally, the publication on workplace privacy
jointly prepared with the Bulgarian, Croatian, and Polish data protection
authorities under the Leonardo da Vinci program was presented. Although it seemed initially that opinions of private sector and
supervisory authorities representatives are quite distant, during the
discussion they approached, since there was full agreement that privacy of
investigated must always be taken into account. Appropriate means to this are
the ex post information and other procedures resulting from privacy by design.
