Fifteen years ago, the Council of Europe launched a Data Protection Day to be celebrated each year on 28 January, the date on which the Council of Europe’s data protection convention, also known as “Convention 108” was opened for signature back in 1981 in Strasbourg. This Convention is considered the founding binding international instrument protecting the individual against risks and abuses that might arise from the collection and processing of personal data, while providing guarantees safeguarding respect to this essential right. *
The Data Protection & Privacy (TMT) team of Andersen Legal, Greece, following nearly 3 years of GDPR implementation, having successfully completed numerous compliance projects and actively supporting and serving as Data Protection Officer across a wide range of industries, wishes you all a Happy Data Protection Day 2021!
