Practical guide on privacy within companies

Stéphanie De Smedt, team leader of the Loyens & Loeff Benelux-wide Privacy & Data Protection Team in Belgium, has co-authored the practical guide ‘Privacy within companies’ published by Kluwer.

Practical guide on privacy within companies published by Marga Caproni and Stephanie De Smedt

With the entry into force of the General Data Processing Regulation or GDPR, privacy and data protection can no longer be ignored from the day-to-day activities of both large and small companies in any sector.

However, privacy and data protection are so much more than the GDPR alone (think of camera surveillance, privacy in an HR context, security of data, etc.). Many practical and pressing questions already existed before the GDPR and are not necessarily resolved by it. In their practice as lawyers in a business office Marga and Stéphanie are confronted with these questions on a daily basis. With this book they want to offer companies an answer that goes beyond the law, and with which they can get to work as practical as possible.

Privacy and data protection in day-to-day activities

This book is written from the day-to-day experience of the authors. It is not an academic work, but a practical reference work for companies that process personal data. The various chapters have been divided on the basis of concrete questions that the authors encounter in their practice and go beyond the mere application. Do you want to know more about the book?
