Riga – The organizers of Mare Balticum Gaming Summit 2018 are excited to announce a panel dedicated for GDPR compliance. The event is going to be held on the 8th of May at Astor Riga and the announce panel promises to bring essential information about the implementation of GDPR from the industry’s view.

GDPR is bringing major changes which are giving EU citizens more control over their data and many experts are stressing on the fact that 3 major changes are to be expected by the gambling industry.

First of all is the Internal Governance and Responsibility, which will be vital for all companies. It relies mostly on keeping track of data processing activities and avoid the second major change. The second major changes is Security Breaches which have happened many times during the last years. However, under the law, in the event of personal data breach, a report must be filled no later than 72 hours.

The third and most important change is the Data Portability, which means that any subscriber of the database will have the right to receive a copy of any personal data which is held by the company about them. This is an important part as it implies that all the data has been given by consent and the company has not collected other personal data as well.

Either way, under GDPR, there will be an increased emphasis on being able to demonstrate compliance and avoid penalties.

The “Countdown to GDPR – The eminent changes GDPR bring to the industry” panel discussion will be moderated by Tal Itzhak Ron (Tal Ron, Drihem and Co. Law Firm) who will be joined by seasoned expert speakers such as Dr. Dennis Voigt (Partner at Melchers Law), Jaka Repansek (RePublis d.o.o.) and Boaz Gam (CEO at PaynetEasy Technologies Limited).
