This will have consequences for all organisations who deal with this kind of data… but how can they prepare for it?

Workshop 1: Where legal really meets IT [in Dutch]
Law Firm T&R Lawyers are specialised in privacy law and have applied their knowledge to build an application that is applicable to all organisations.
