We at DURY Compliance & Consulting GmbH also took the opportunity to exchange ideas with other data protection actors and experts from the data protection industry.

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.
