In addition to assistance in specific cases, we also give customized in-house presentations on various privacy issues.
Privacy is becoming more and more important every day. On 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG, also GDPR) came into force. This considerably increases the authority of the Dutch Personal Data Authority. What is more, any violation of privacy rules is often seized as an opportunity for negative publicity, with potentially costly reputational damage as a result. At the same time, more and more (non-standard) personal details are being processed. This situation makes businesses and healthcare institutions vulnerable.
