Two Day General Data Protection Regulation

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 3 maggio 2018

The “GDPR Foundation Course” training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. It has substantial ramifications for tech companies not just in the EU, but globally. The regulation protects the data of all EU subjects regardless of the country in which they reside or the platform on which their data resides.From the 25th of May 2018, organisations who process, monitor, and store data belonging to EU citizens will be mandated to transform their marketing, system, and processing methods drastically to ensure the safety of data against cyber attacks and breaches.GDPR will require organisations who process and control data to strengthen their data privacy controls, enhance technology for management of personal data and the supplying of detailed documentation. For cloud suppliers and those companies who work with them, GDPR will also force major operational changes-so much so that it could slow both innovation and growth. This 2-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR’s Principles, rights terminology, and compliance mechanisms. Candidates will learn how to plan a risk adverse, change driven, continuous and well thought through compliance programme with applicable accountability management of multifaceted roles like Data Protection Officer (DPO), Data Controller, and Data Processor under the GDPR.

GDPR al giro di boa, dodici mesi alla privacy europea

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 15 maggio 2017

computer-da-tavoloViene identificato con l’acronimo GDPR, che in inglese significa “General Data Protection Regulation”, ed è il nuovo Regolamento europeo sulla protezione dei dati, entrato in vigore il 24 maggio 2016 con due anni di tempo per adeguarsi, ma il primo anno a disposizione è già passato velocemente, e adesso ad aziende e pubbliche amministrazioni rimangono solo 12 mesi per mettersi in regola per non esporsi a multe che potranno arrivare fino a 20 milioni di euro o al 4% del fatturato globale annuo.
Ormai in prossimità del “giro di boa” verso la piena operatività del Regolamento 2016/679, il presidente di Federprivacy Nicola Bernardi, commenta così: “Nei primi dodici mesi dall’entrata in vigore del nuovo testo comunitario, professionisti e manager hanno speso molto tempo in congressi e meeting per ragionare sulle numerose novità della data protection, ma intanto metà del tempo a disposizione se ne è già andato. Ora le aziende devono stringere sui tempi e passare tempestivamente dalle parole ai fatti, perché dal 25 maggio 2018 l’Autorità Garante applicherà inesorabilmente il nuovo sistema sanzionatorio, e per questo gli addetti ai lavori nei prossimi mesi non avranno più molti spazi per dedicarsi a eventi dispersivi, che toglierebbero loro tempo prezioso da dedicare alle complesse attività necessarie per adeguarsi entro la scadenza”.
Per chi ancora non si è aggiornato, l’unica strada saggia da percorrere a questo punto è quindi quella di puntare su formazione intensiva e qualificata, e il 24 maggio 2017 si svolgerà a Roma un workshop full immersion sul Regolamento UE 2016/679, promosso da Federprivacy con il patrocinio dell’Istituto Italiano Privacy e dell’Associazione Nazionale per la Difesa della Privacy.
Liberi professionisti e manager di imprese e p.a. avranno quindi l’opportunità di aggiornarsi e confrontarsi con gli esperti della materia sulle principali novità del Regolamento europeo, tra cui temi come il principio di “accountability”, la “privacy by design”, il “one-stop-shop”, il “data breach”, il “privacy impact assessment”, e la nuova figura del “data protection officer”, su cui Federprivacy presenterà in anteprima un nuovo videoclip informativo.
Il workshop si svolgerà al Palazzo del’Informazione, ed è accreditato dal Consiglio Nazionale Forense, riconosciuto dal TÜV Examination Institute con i crediti per i professionisti certificati come Privacy Officer e Consulenti della Privacy, ed è valido anche ai fini dell’Attestato di Qualità per i soci Federprivacy.

Police training – Civil Liberties MEPs endorse deal with member states on CEPOL

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 luglio 2015

cepolCross-border police training and cooperation among national police authorities will be stepped up to effectively counter organised crime, cybercrime and terrorist threats thanks to an update of the rules governing the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training, CEPOL, endorsed by the Civil Liberties Committee on Wednesday. The new rules that modernises CEPOL’s legal basis to bring it into line with the Lisbon Treaty and provide better and more effective tools to train EU law enforcement officials were endorsed by the Civil Liberties Committee by 47 votes in favour, 7 against and 5 abstentions. “The urgency and continuous development of security threats, such as terrorism and cybercrime, or the growing demand by migratory flows, make it crucial that European law enforcement authorities receive training of highest standard and are equipped with the most modern tools to effectively counter organised crime”, said Parliament’s lead MEP Kinga Gál (EPP, HU). “The European dimension of CEPOL’s activity is also instrumental in building mutual trust and cross border cooperation among national law enforcement authorities, which is a key element in combatting criminal organisations which operate more and more at international level”, she added. The regulation strengthens the role of the European Union agency for law enforcement training, CEPOL, as a fully independent EU agency provided with better and more effective tools to train EU law enforcement officials. MEPs pushed hard to ensure that fundamental rights are fully embedded in the agency’s mandate. They also ensured that CEPOL is granted flexible training tools and initiatives in areas such as fighting cybercrime, trafficking in drugs and trafficking in human beings. Finally, they also achieved transparency in the appointment of the executive director.
Council on 29 June confirmed the informal agreement reached with Parliament’s negotiators on an update of the rules governing CEPOL.The European Police College, CEPOL, is a European Union Agency, established in 2005. It’s objectives are to increase knowledge of the national police systems and structures of other Member States and of cross-border police cooperation within the European Union, to improve knowledge of international and Union instruments and to provide appropriate training with regard to respect for democratic safeguards.In 2013, when the Commission presented its proposal for a new Regulation on EUROPOL, it proposed to merge CEPOL with EUROPOL, but the idea of the merger was rejected by both the Council and the European Parliament. In the meantime, following the UK decision to no longer host CEPOL, the Agency had to relocate from Bramshill (United Kingdom) to Budapest (Hungary), as from the 1st of October 2014.
UK, Ireland and Denmark will not be taking part in the regulation due to their opt-outs on Justice and Home Affairs.

Roma Giovedì 21 maggio 2015 Sala convegni Monte dei Paschi di Siena via Minghetti, 30/a. Nel contesto dell’economia digitale si stanno affermando la dematerializzazione e la digitalizzazione dei pagamenti, con la diffusione delle monete virtuali, fra cui sta assumendo una certa rilevanza il Bitcoin. Secondo un recente studio della Banca d’Italia attualmente vi sono in circolazione 12,5 milioni di unità di Bitcoin per un controvalore pari a circa 6 miliardi.La trans-nazionalità del fenomeno delle valute virtuali ha portato molte autorità di vigilanza, nazionali e internazionali, a interrogarsi sull’argomento, in particolare se e come regolamentarlo. Nel 2012 la Banca Centrale Europea ha pubblicato il documento “Virtual Currency Schemes”, che ha affrontato con approccio sistematico gli aspetti più rilevanti del sistema Bitcoin, sia dal punto di vista economico che giuridico. Nel 2013 la European Bank Authority (EBA) ha pubblicato una nota sui rischi dell’utilizzo del Bitcoin da parte dei consumatori.A gennaio 2014 il Congresso degli Stati Uniti ha pubblicato il Report “Regulation of Bitcoin in Selected Jurisdictions”, che raccoglie le pronunce delle autorità di 40 nazioni sul tema Bitcoin. A luglio 2014 l’EBA ha individuato numerosi profili di rischio connessi ai Bitcoin. A gennaio 2015 la Banca d’Italia ha condiviso l’opinione dell’EBA, scoraggiando banche e altri intermediari finanziari dall’acquistare, detenere o vendere valute virtuali, come il Bitcoin. Il Bitcoin, benché la diffusione in Italia sia ancora limitata, è probabilmente la valuta attorno alla quale si è concentrata gran parte del dibattito pubblico su rischi e opportunità di questi nuovi mezzi di pagamento, sul loro utilizzo come possibile alternativa alle monete elettroniche. Nel nostro Paese si sono susseguite interrogazioni parlamentari e proposte di indagini conoscitive sulle monete virtuali e in particolare sul Bitocoin, che testimoniano un crescente interesse verso il fenomeno e al tempo stesso la necessità di una riflessione volta a colmare i gap conoscitivi, anche in un’ottica di educazione finanziaria e di sensibilizzazione sociale. Ma come funziona in realtà il Bitcoin? Quali sono natura giuridica e profili economici? Quali sono i rischi e le opportunità?ISIMM, nel solco di una consolidata tradizione di seminari di approfondimento sull’economia digitale, organizza un incontro di riflessione sul Bitcoin.La partecipazione al seminario è gratuita.

Recommendation to European Court of Justice to Uphold EU Ban on Trade in Products of Commercial Seal Hunts Commended

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 23 marzo 2015

Par7545996BRUSSELS EU Advocate General Kokott is urging the European Court of Justice to reject an appeal brought by commercial sealing interests and some Inuit representatives. The appeal relates to a 2013 decision by the European General Court, which rejected the appellants’ request to find the legal basis and implementing measures for the EU ban on commercial seal product trade unlawful.Joanna Swabe, Ph.D, EU executive director for HSI, said: “We commend Advocate General Kokott for her strong opinion that highlights just how unfounded the grounds for appeal were in this case. This was a cynical attempt by sealing industry interests to try to annul legislation, which was adopted through a democratic process in response to public moral concerns about the products of commercial seal slaughter being placed on the EU market. We hope the European Court of Justice will follow the recommendations of the Advocate General and reject this spurious attempt to overturn the EU’s legislation.”This is the final appeal in a series of cases brought by commercial sealing industry and some Inuit representatives in an attempt to annul the EU Regulation on trade in seal products. All cases brought thus far have been dismissed by the European Courts. A final judgment is expected in the coming months.Other international courts are also supporting the EU decision to ban commercial seal products. In 2013, the World Trade Organization ruled on a challenge of the EU ban on seal product trade by Canada and Norway, upholding the right of the EU to ban trade in products of commercial sealing on the grounds of public morality. In 2014, the WTO considered an appeal of that ruling by Canada and Norway, and once again decided largely in favour of the EU.

EU documents: more transparency needed

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 aprile 2011

The regulation on access to EU documents needs to be thoroughly revised and a change of mentality is needed, argued MEPs on Wednesday at a hearing organised by the Civil Liberties Committee. The hearing, titled “The right of access to EU documents: implementation and future of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001”, gave the MEPs steering Parliament’s work in this field the opportunity to discuss with outside experts the state of play regarding the current regulation and the revision which is under way. “It was clear today that there is a need now more than ever for more transparency in the EU institutions, and we parliamentarians will drive the new regulation in this direction. This is a law that gives you, the citizens of the EU, the right to access any document held, received or produced by the EU institutions, bodies and agencies. Its main ambition is to make the EU lawmakers and all our institutions more accountable to the citizens, and together with my colleagues from the European Parliament I will do all I can for this to be achieved”, said Michael Cashman (S&D, UK), Civil Liberties Committee rapporteur on the revision of regulation 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents.

European rail policy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 aprile 2010

Brussels international conference on 22 June entitled Effectiveness of EU Rail Policy. It is going to be a top meeting place for representatives of the European Commission, European governments, railway infrastructure managers, rail freight operators as well as passenger operators and the industry. The conference will pose and answer questions such as: How effective has European rail policy been so far? Has it been fairly implemented in the EU Member States? Has it effectively guaranteed fair competition? The conference will also address issues such as the rail policy making process itself and European regulation. Other themes will be competition in the passenger and in the freight markets. The organisers are the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds in the UK and Europoint Rail Technology Conferences & Exhibitions in the Netherlands. The conference programme will start with an overview of the effectiveness of EU rail policy. This summary is given by Chris Nash, professor at the aforementioned Institute for Transport Studies (ITS). Over the past few years, this institute has undertaken a number of research projects. These have contributed to the identification of best practices in the implementation of EU rail policy and to consider how effective this policy has been. The results from this and other research will set the tone of the conference. His introductory speech is followed by other top speakers, such as Maurizio Castelleti, Head of Rail Transport and Interoperability Unit of DG MOVE. Johannes Ludewig, executive director of CER will subsequently speak on EU Rail Policy – more than legislation? The function of the EU Railway Agency in the implementation process of EU rail policy will be addressed by Marcel Verslype, executive director of ERA. This session will close off with a forum discussion. It will be interesting to hear the viewpoints in the discussion of for instance two national competitors. These are the Italian national public railway operator, FS (Ferrovie dello Stato), and the relatively newcomer to the Italian passenger railway market, NTV (Nuovo Trasport Viaggiatori). NTV, high-speed railway operator, will start offering passenger services on high-speed lines as of next year.
