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.

During the presentations, which were held in English and French, the participants gained a comprehensive insight into various topics and questions relating to the General Data Protection Regulation and were able to familiarize themselves with the rights and duties of the data controller and the processor as well as with the role of the data protection officer. Some presentations also dealt with the modalities of data protection impact assessment and the right to privacy. Data Protection Officers also had the opportunity to report on their data protection practices in 15-minute keynote speeches. In addition, the IAPP presented its Privacy Core e-learning tool, which will facilitate the training of data protection staff in the future. The networking sessions between the presentations rounded off the event and gave participants the opportunity to deepen the topics covered in the presentations, discuss issues raised and discuss challenges and best practices.
