gdpr 3285252 1920It should be common sense that data privacy is a very important element of business these days. Even though many responsible people have not yet overseen the necessity and possible consequences of not taking care about these issues. In the eyes of many, the GDPR is nothing but a bureaucratic monster created by the EU. Some “implement” the regulations within their process landscapes without understanding the surrounding world and internal consequences. If people consider the contents of GDPR as unnecessary and some kind of chicane, it shows that they have not yet understood how vulnerable individuals got in the digital age. Especially considering long term effects, is somehow peculiar for many people since in business life many decisions are driven on short term perspectives.

European Data Privacy Congress GDPR 1 22 May 2019 LuxembourgOn 22 May 2019 we, the DURY Compliance & Consulting GmbH, will organize in cooperation with the Wirtschaftsdiplomaten Krohn & Partner and the Vindler GmbH a European Data Protection congress which will take place in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg).

One year after the entry into force of the GDPR we would like to use the opportunity to take in the course of our congress „#GDPR + 1 – The European Business and Data Privacy Congress“ (conference languages: EN, DE, FR) retrospectively stock of what has been achieved as well as to recapitulate the data protection strategies which have proven to work and to identify the aspects of the GDPR that are still in need of reform. The aim is to jointly develop constructive proposals for solutions. Starting from data protection in Luxembourg, we will focuse on Europe and the way the different countries are dealing with the General Data Protection Regulation. With the organization of our European congress we intend moreover to create a platform for the exchange of experiences between companies and representatives of the supervisory authorities within the EU and to contribute in this way to a development of data protection rules in Europe adapted to the needs of our modern times. To this effect we developed an innovative conference format combining the advantages of the classic conference model with keynote lectures given by renowned speakers and subsequent discussion with those of an interactive workshop session
 with German, French and English work groups. In the following you will learn more about the target group, the concept, the objectives and the highlights of the congress.
