GDPR and DPA Masterclasses

The GDPR will enter into force on 25 May 2018 and the DPA will enter into force at the earliest in the summer of 2018.

Non-compliance may lead to reputation damage, interruption of business due to investigations or measures imposed by data protection authorities or fines up to EUR 20mio or 4% of your annual worldwide turn over under the GDPR and CHF 250,000 under the DPA.

To avoid these effects get up to speed on the requirements now with our masterclasses. The masterclasses form a series and build up your knowledge throughout the sessions. We therefore recommend to attend all three masterclasses. We will discuss the following topics providing ample practical examples.
