SVKK Training Online: Privacy Compliance Challenges: GDPR v. Russian law

Price for members 0,00 € + tax
ONLINE + in English
Price 75,00 € + tax

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines companies’ compliance on personal data collecting, processing and storing. Russia has its own personal data protection law, which also must be followed in companies’ operations. Both laws are complicated and sanctioned.

The EU GDPR is somewhat familiar to Finnish companies, and many companies have been forced to familiarize with the Russian one as well. However, it is sometimes hard to follow both these legislative frames.
This training is about synchronizing and comparing these two legislative contexts and finding out where a company should be especially careful in creating company’s compliances.
