Following the advice of the public authorities and for your safety, we've decided to postpone this event until further notice.

It is our pleasure to host this seminar given by Dr Sandrine Munoz, the Data Protection Officer and Gaëlle Gammaitoni Paralegal Officer of the University of Luxembourg. Please feel free to forward this invitation.

Are you aware of the key points of the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into force in May 2018?

A detailed understanding of personal data regulations is essential for anybody handling personal data within their projects. If you'd like to be more confident in the management of the legal and regulatory aspects of data protection then this talk is for you.

Key requirements of the GDPR as well as the concept of personal data, in relation to legal principles and the field of research, will be explained. The talk will provide one or two case studies fitting to SnT research projects and will place particular emphasis on how to comply with the privacy by design and by default and the role of SnT with regards to data protection. In addition SnT’s obligations in terms of data protection will be addressed through the case studies.

Regulations require that high-level data protection is built into the development of business processes for research projects from the start and implemented throughout: given the complexity of the issue and the level of possible sanctions, it has never been more important to be prepared.

Sandrine Munoz is the Data Protection Officer of the UL since September 2017. She holds a PhD in European and French law focused on internet issues, from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (South of France). Beforehand she worked for the Ministry of Economics as legal advisor for electronic commerce and in a Luxembourg major bank as lawyer, compliance officer and personal data protection lawyer.

Gaëlle Gammaitoni is Paralegal Officer at the University Luxembourg since July 2019. She holds a Master 2 Space, Communication and Media Law from the University of Luxembourg.
