With increasingly stringent regulations, constantly augmented consumer awareness, and evolving cyber threats, safeguarding data is not just a good practice; it’s a business and legal necessity. Moreover, in an era where data has been repeatedly reconfirmed as a valuable asset, data privacy should not be treated as a legal requirement exclusively, but rather as a practice indispensable for a company’s success.
Data privacy matters for businesses, primarily because it fosters customer trust, enhances data security, provides a competitive edge, ensures compliance with laws, and fulfils ethical responsibilities. All these are topics that should be high on the executives’ agenda, before becoming factors that disrupt the core of a business. As part of our commitment to acting as business partners to our clients, we focus on guiding them through the intricate maze of data protection laws and the complex regulatory landscape in this field.
We reconfirm and enrich our approach to data privacy and personal data protection matters including by maintaining strong connections with highly reputable third-party professional associations which place considerable importance on advocating for this topic, such as the American Chamber of Commerce in Romania (AmCham Romania), as well as other discussion forums, such as those promoted by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
To this end, Cosmina Simion and Petruș Partene will attend IAPP’s 2023 edition of the Europe Data Protection Congress, which is “Europe’s top gathering of data protection professionals”, now in its 12th year.
The event will take place in Brussels, Belgium, during November 15-16, 2023.
