For the second consecutive time, CEE Legal matters organized Balkan GC Summit in Belgrade. The event gathered general counsels, compliance officers and lawyers from the region to discuss vibrant topics in the legal industry.
BDK Advokati’s partner Bogdan Ivanišević held a presentation in which he addressed the issue of misunderstandings that often occur between companies and the law firms concerning data protection compliance audits. Law firms consider such audit as a complex legal task which requires a comprehensive approach, while some companies believe it can be performed fairly quickly, or prefer a partial approach.
These findings were mainly based on BDK Advokati’s practice in data protection field and experiences of other law firms in Serbian market.
Bogdan concluded his presentation by explaining the risks which less-than-full compliance brings for companies in the sense of potential harm to their reputation and fines they may eventually face.
