Crisis issues about personal data protection law
At the building of Independent Trade Union of Science and Higher Education in Zagreb, crisis issues regarding GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) were presented at the press conference. GDPR was passed by European parliament and EU Council on April 27th, 2016.
The application of this Regulation, which has already come into force, starts on May 25th, 2018 and for which is necessary to harmonize and implement legal and informational documents within organizations that deal with the collection of personal data.
Regulation was presented by Ana Keglović Horvat, law graduate, an alumna of the Academy for Political Development, long-term lecturer and coach of University of Zagreb, numerous private and public universities and educations throughout 5 European countries, communications consultant and coach for GPDR, direct and digital marketing and advertising.
GDPR has become one of the great challenges of Croatian economy but also of Croatian public administration. The law, which was recently presented to Croatian public, shows incentive of double standards, which separates Regulation and breach of the same on public and private sector. Although GDPR is not news for Croatia or for all citizens living within EU zone, it still represents certain unknowns considering that it’s still in the adjustment period until it is soon put in force. We are in a pivotal moment, not just for citizens, but for organizations which need to adjust their business with GDPR.
We have less than three months until full implementation of GDPR and the awareness of the citizens about their rights and organizations of their obligations is not at necessary level. Adjustment period of organizations with GDPR in Croatia and the proposal of the Law on Implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation, has opened a lot of questions for which we are still looking for the answers. List of those questions can be found at the link below.
