The challenges for Polish companies at a time of fundamental changes in national and EU regulations pertaining to personal data protection will be the Focus of the National Personal Data Protection Conference, to be held on November 19th at the Sheraton Hotel in Warsaw.
In the coming years, the issue of personal data protection will be one of the key elements of risk management and ensuring the continuity of the functioning of Polish companies. Why? Due to the amendment to the personal data protection act coming into force in January and the planned introduction of the regulation of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe regarding the protection of the data on natural persons.
These changes will have a direct impact on the functioning of companies and will encompass practically all key areas of their activity, particularly human resources management, marketing, sales, finances and administration.
The organizer of the Conference – JDS Consulting – aims to support companies in adapting to the new conditions.
– Managers, directors of legal and compliance departments, as well as data security administrators – to whom the conference is addressed – will not only be acquainted with clearly defined challenges, but also with the means to answer them and, as a result, remove the operational and financial risks – says Dariusz Kasjaniuk, Chairman of JDS Consulting.
A systemic approach to the reform of domestic and EU regulations and their impact on the legal environment of Polish companies has been noted and appreciated by successful entities engaged in legal and economic activity.
– The broad range of topics covered shows that the organizers are particularly sensitive to the importance of high standards of personal data use for the economy and for entrepreneurship – points out Marzena Guz-Vetter, Acting Director of the Representation of the European Commission in Poland. – The inclusion of issues related to labour law and the changing legal environment testifies to the importance of the event for business – she adds.
A high level of expertise will be ensured by the presence of domestic and international experts with rich experience in international corporations, representatives of employers’ organizations, as well as control institutions and legislators involved in the introduction of the aforementioned changes. Guests will include:
Honorary patronage over the event has been accepted by the European Commission: Member of the European Parliament Michał Boni and the Chairwoman of the Justice and Human Rights Commission, Member of the Parliament Stanisława Prządka.
Media partners: Dziennik Gazeta Prawna and praca.pl.
