During our IKD Meeting in Helsinki, we discussed an event we named “Train the Trainers”.

Finally, Žiga Primc (Slovenia) and Lothar Müller (Germany) took up it and make a provisional suggestion to start with the discussion on the EU General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR.

The idea is that two lawyers, one from Slovenia and one from Germany, talk about the Data Protection Regulation and its significance for our profession when making business within European Union as well as with non-European countries.

We already got in contact with the two lawyers: Marco Biewald from Germany and Nataša Pirc Musar from Slovenia, who are ready to prepare presentations or workshops and discuss the relevant issues with the participants.

Mr. Biewald is a long-standing lawyer in Germany; he and his law-company is specialized in Data protection Law, for Germany and international Nataša Pirc Musar, former information officer, established Slovenian “Data Protection Officer Club”; together with her team she works actively on this field of Data protection in Slovenia.

We suggest that the workshop should be addresses to the trainers among us, but of course all members are invited to take part in this one-day-event.

At this stage of preparation, we have discussed with the speakers a raw of topics among others:

  • Providing of information on behalf of an EU-client concerning an EU-citizen / company for an EU-clients;
  • Providing of information on behalf of an EU-client on an EU-citizen / company for a Non-EUclient;
  • Providing of information on behalf of a non-EU client (eg USA / GB) concerning an EU-citizen / EU- company;
  • Commissioning a non-EU-colleague (PI) to obtain information / knowledge about an EUcitizen / EU- company during his / her stay abroad;
  • Commissioning a Non-EU-colleague (PI) to obtain information / knowledge about a Non-EUcitizen / company based abroad;
  • Differences between national regulations e.g. Employments and their special national regulations;
  • Special requirements with reference to Employee Data Protection, which could be different from country to country;
  • Requirements on the orders from Client to PI and from PI to PI
  • Technical requirements for transfer data from one country to another and special requirements for GPS-Data, video-/photo documentations (and their transfer abroad)
  • Requirements for individual questions in individual countries.

These are the main issues with the international reference.

We invite all members for this event.
