Personal data and GDPR matters


Personal data and GDPR matters

 “Personal data protection has been increasingly scrutinized by Russian and European regulators. Tougher penalties for personal data breaches in Russia along with the adoption and wide enforcement of the GDPR in the EU make personal data services an important part of compliance services”

Ekaterina Portman, Director of Deloitte Legal, Head of Data Protection Practice of Deloitte CIS
