“Privacy and Companies: Whistleblowing and employees monitoring in light of the new regulation” – AIDP, Milan (28 March 2018)

What is new for companies after the European regulation on privacy entered into force: this is the topic of Vittorio De Luca’s speech on occasion of the upcoming conference “Privacy and Companies: Whistleblowing and employees monitoring in light of the new regulation” organized by AIDP and to be held on 28 March 2018.


“Privacy and companies: Whistleblowing and employees monitoring in light of the new regulation”
At the Salone Valente of the Court of Milan, on occasion of the convention organized by AIDP, on 28 March, 2018, has been discussed, among other topics, the effects and consequences that the new European Regulation will have on whistleblowing and on the remote monitoring of employees in the corporate environment: a discussion which also included the remarks of speakers from the private and public business environments.


The entry into force of the European Regulation on personal data protection: what will change for companies
In his speech, Vittorio De Luca highlighted the main news introduced by the new European regulation on the matter of privacy, pointing out how, beyond the specific rules, the regulation is bringing forth an actual cultural change on privacy.
Specifically, the concept of accountability, similarly to the new approach based on risk, represents the most significant facet of the cultural change introduced by the regulation.
An additional innovative aspect, of great importance, brought to the attention of the attending audience by Vittorio De Luca, is the territorial application of the regulation: in fact, said regulation in addition to establishing a uniform rule for all the EU Member States, includes also cases where the new rules must be respected even outside the European Union.
In addition to these two categories of change (the “cultural” one and the “territorial” one) there is the one related to the new aspects introduced or redesigned: the DPO (Data Protection Officer), the concept of shared liability, the procedure to follow in the case of data breach, the preparation and the holding of the data processing register, the right to be forgotten and to data portability, the preliminary examination, the external data processor and the PIA.
