GDPR PRESENTATION FOR FRENCH ENTREPRENEURS AND DIRECTORS AT PAVILLON DE PARIS
19 November 2018
Our managing partner Richard Schmidt made a joint presentation on the General Data Protection Regulation for French entrepreneurs and directors at the club DEFH, together with Mr.Julien Thomas, IT professional and founder of YourOSoft.
The General Data Protection Regulation is a serious challenge for the Small and Medium Sized enterprises, which are subject to the same rules as bigger multinational companies.
Given that both SMARTLEGAL and YourOSoft are specialized among others in data protection, Richard as lawyer and Julien as IT professional has decided to make a joint presentation on the topic, for French entrepreneurs and directors, focusing on the practical side of GDPR conformity.
Richard started the presentation, by shocking the participants with some statistics, showing that the overall GDPR preparedness of businesses in Europe and in Hungary is very low.
After summarizing the basics of data protection law, Richard continued with sharing case studies with the participants, taken from the case law of the Hungarian Data Protection Authority, from the years of 2017-2018. To learn from others’ mistakes, Richard focused on the most frequent data breaches in Hungary which led to penalties imposed by the Hungarian Authority in recent years.
In the Second part of the presentation, Julien, as IT professional has shared useful information with the participants regarding informataion security and addressed their related technical questions.
We would like to say thank you for the Club DEFH for inviting us to make the first joint presentation of SMARTLEGAL and YourOSoft, and for the Restaurant Pavillon de Paris, for hosting the event!
