Finnish companies doing business in Russia must comply with the GDPR on the one hand, and with the local Personal Data Law on the other. No matter how ambitious the project is, a collision between laws may collapse it like a shot.

Russian law provides for specific requirements on legitimate interest, data subject’s consent, cross-border transfer, localization of data storage, data security, and other matters. This year, Russia revises its legislation on public data that will substantially affect CRM procedures, especially in the e-commerce.

Our speakers will compare key aspects of the GDPR with the Russian Personal Data Law and share practical tips and tricks. The attendees will get to know how to effectively tackle compliance challenges relevant to any industry.
