The Croatian Personal Data Protection Agency, in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Economy, continues with the cycle of free online workshops “How to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”. Micro, small and medium-sized entrepreneurs from the Osijek-Baranja County and Pozega-Slavonia County had the opportunity to participate in the workshops on November 12 and 13 November 2020.

Interactive workshops, which in addition to lectures on the legal framework on personal data protection, consist of practical exercises in order for entrepreneurs to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to align their business processes with the GDPR. Participants were also given working materials and some templates for implementation of the GDPR, which can then be adapted to their business processes, as well as a certificate of completed education issued by AZOP as the national supervisory body responsible for monitoring the application of the General Data Protection Regulation in Croatia.

The workshops are conducted within the framework of the EU project ARC (Awareness raising campaign for small and medium enterprises) co-financed by the European Union Programme for Rights, Equality and Citizenship, coordinated by AZOP, in partnership with the Data Protection Commission, the Irish Data Protection Supervisory Authority and the University of Vrije from Brussels.
