Milica Basta speaks about the new Data Protection Act

Milica Basta, senior associate at BDK Advokati, was one of the speakers at the Forum Media data protection conference held on 23 April 2019 in Belgrade.

At the event, which gathered a large number of Serbian companies, Milica held a presentation on requirements that Serbian new Data Protection Act imposes on local businesses. She emphasized that companies first need to thoroughly analyze their business operations to determine what kind of data processing is taking place in their organizations. Based on the results of such analysis, companies should adopt a set of documents which can be divided in two groups: those that companies are not required to adopt but will strengthen their capacity to act in a lawful manner and documents which the companies must adopt according to the new law.

The session attracted considerable interest from the audience which used the opportunity to ask many relevant questions during the presentation. The vibrant discussion on this topic continued in the course of the afternoon panel which, besides Milica Basta, hosted colleagues from other local law firms.
