    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union comes into force on 25 May 2018, introducing the most comprehensive change in data protection over the last 25 years and establishing the strictest data protection regime in the world.

    The GDPR has cross-border effect, affecting every enterprise worldwide, handling personal data of individuals living in the EU.

    In case of non-compliance, your business has to face serious fines: in case of minor, administrative data breach, the authorities can impose fines up to 10 Million EUR or 2% of the annual worldwide turnover, in case of major data breach, the fine may be up EUR 20 Million or 4% of the worldwide annual turnover.

    Given the cross-border nature of GDPR, international businesses need comprehensive approach to comply with the new regulation.

    For this reason, the member firms of International Law Firms have established a GDPR Working Group in 2017, in the framework of which they can mutually share information and best-practices with each other.

    We suggest that your GDPR compliance project consist of the following 3 (three) phases: Due-Diligence, Compliance, and Training.

    Due Diligence

    In the frame of Due Diligence, we identify the problems and risks within your company that need to be addressed to meet the GDPR, and we provide you with an action plan in which the steps, necessary to be taken to meet compliance are summarised.

    Compliance

    Problems and risks discovered during the Due Diligence are solved and treated at this stage, by reviewing & drafting internal data protection documentation, and other related documents. Besides internal documents, we focus on contracts concluded by you, as well as the personal data protection aspect of the contract templates used by your company.

    Training

    The world's best corporate privacy policy is worth nothing if your employees do not know or do not comply with its provisions. For this reason, we apply a data protection training on request, whereby based on the internal rules adopted by you in the framework of Compliance,  we teach the basic personal data protection rules to you employees, and test their knowledge.

    On 14th April the Danish and Hungarian member firms of the ILF organized a conference in Budapest, with the title “Hungary in a nutshell”. Twenty Danish lawyers of the Law Society of Aalborg took part on the half-day conference in the framework of a long week-end.

    The colleagues of the SMC Partners Law Firm made presentations to their Danish peers on various topics of Hungarian law, from corporate law, through labour law to real estate law. The participants could also hear some useful information about Hungarian accounting and taxation system, presented by the cooperating partner of the SMC Partners Law Firm.

    This short conference was a great opportunity to extend and deepen relationships between members of ILF.

    We hope that our Danish colleagues enjoyed their long week-end in the Hungarian capital!
