GDPR for Medical Sector

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aimed, starting with the date of its application – May 25th, 2018, to ensure a consistent and high framework for personal data protection, harmonized in all member states of the European Union, and therefore in Romania too.

This has led to increased responsibilities for the entities that process personal data, in the sense of ensuring compliance with the principles and rules established by the GDPR, but also beyond this, an increased care to ensure that the personal data they process are protected effectively and the rights and freedoms of individuals are respected.

In particular, the data processing in the medical sector requires increased attention, not only due to the fact that health data and genetic data are considered special categories of data within the meaning of the GDPR, but also due to the fact that the manner in which the personal data are processed and protected in this field is highly connected to the trust of patients and data subjects in general.

The workshop will be held during two days and it is addressed to all participants who want to gain or consolidate their knowledge in the field, especially data protection officers, legal advisors and employees from the medical sector who deal with personal data during their daily work activities.

Scope of training:

1. Personal Data processing in the medical sector

2. Diversified GDPR topics in the field of medical services, pharmaceuticals and clinical trials

3. Interactive workshop based on practical examples in the medical field
