Nymity Addresses European Parliament

The GDPR and Technological Innovation - Interparliamentary Committee Meeting, EU Parliament

On May 15 2018, Paul BreitbarthDirector of EU Certification Research and Regulator Outreach at Nymity, was invited to address the Interparliamentary Committee Meeting on Data Protection in the European Parliament, uniting Members of that house and representatives of the national parliaments of the 28 EU Member States. The meeting, taking place on the eve of the entry into full force of the GDPR, focused on institutional matters, consequences for the private section (and SMEs in particular), the role of technological innovation and, finally, the police and justice directive. Hear Paul as he talks about our recent innovations for organizations struggling with their processing activities register and data protection impact assessments (DPIAs).

Here’s highlights of what he had to say:
