About

29 JANUARY, MONDAY

NATIONAL PALACE OF CULTURE, SOFIA

Hall 3

8:30 a.m - 3:30 p.m

One-day deep-dive conference in the capital of the EU Presidency focusing on the effects of the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - the EU's biggest data protection reform. During the GDPR Sofia event, you will have the opportunity to raise questions directly with Maria Gabriel, EU Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, and Lilyana Pavlova, Minister of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU.

If your company or organization deals with personal data of EU citizens, the regulation requires a significant change in the way personal data is handled and processed and you will need to be well prepared for that. It will come into force in May 2018 during the Bulgarian Presidency of the EU Council and will become a part of the rules which will be mandatory for all businesses, operating with personal data.
