GDPR today: who is still afraid of the big bad wolf?

Timelex lawyer Yung Shin Van Der Sype will lead a session about the GDPR at the EELA (European Employment Lawyers Association) conference in Tallinn, Estonia. 

The General Data Protection Regulation EU 2016/679 (GDPR) came in with bells on. Concerned by the strengthened enforcement mechanisms and further-driven empowerment of data subjects, companies had to rethink how to handle personal data – also, their employee data. Now, one year after the GDPR’s point zero, it is time for a first ‘benefits vs. efforts’ assessment. How are employers handling and not handling their GDPR compliance? Did the supposedly insurmountable threat of data subject claims/requests and administrative fines actually manifested during the first GDPR year? Were employers confronted with a data subject request ‘boom’?

The goal of this session is to discuss how employers have addressed (reasonable and less reasonable) data subject requests, how they dealt with data protection in employment litigation, and how they implement(ed) the GDPR in practice. In addition, the panel members of the session will have a closer look at a number of indivertible implementation drawbacks and pitfalls, such as the use of biometric data of employees, employee consent and data retention periods for HR files.

What do stakeholders expect from the Cybersecurity Competence Network Centre pilot projects?

EU institutions are intensively discussing the EC proposal for a regulation establishing the European Cybersecurity Industrial, Technology and Research Competence Centre and the Network of National Coordination Centres. At the same time, four pilot projects are starting to experiment on core building blocks of the proposal, such as Cybersecurity governance in Europe, the application of Cybersecurity research to critical industry sectors, the availability, evaluation and usage of open tools for Cybersecurity, and the creation of a Cybersecurity research roadmap.

CyberSec4Europe is one of those four pilot projects. As part of its Kick-off meeting on February 28 CyberSec4Europe is organizing a high level panel “What do stakeholders expect from the Cybersecurity Competence Network Centre pilot projects?” including representatives of the EP, the European Commission and the EDPS. The panel is followed by a reception and poster exhibition of some of the activities CyberSec4Europe is starting now.

Timelex is legal partner of CyberSec4Europe.
