23 November 2017: NKF Seminars: Another 6 months until the GDPR will become applicable – why companies in Switzerland need to (re)act!

Every company in Switzerland processes personal data. Also most Swiss companies bear a reference to the EU, by virtue of e.g. rendering services or offering goods to EU citizens, having a branch in the EU and processing personal data in this context. In such cases the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will also apply to Swiss companies. The GDPR will be applicable as from 25 May 2018. The grace period for the implementation of the GDPR is running since 25 May 2016. This means that every Swiss company which is subject to the GDPR must be ready then. This is a matter of compliance.

In parallel the Swiss Data Protection Act (DPA) is being revised which will lead to increased duties of entities processing personal data and will implement a much stricter sanction regime for cases of violations.

The NKF Technology team is delighted to invite you to a series of events covering this topic. In Q&A sessions lasting 60 minutes, the new data protection legislation in Switzerland and GDRP will be addressed briefly and discussed. Moreover, the already published guidelines of the Artikel-29-Working Party will be summarized. In respect of EU law matters we may count on the support from guest speakers coming from EU jurisdictions.

We look forward to welcoming you to our seminars.
