The Office of Information and Data Protection Commissioner held the third introductory webinar on the new regulatory framework, part of the Twinning Project “Institution-building for alignment with the Union acquis on the protection of personal data”.

This dissemination event gathered over 30 representatives of various civil society organisations (NPOs) and media outlets. Attendees were introduced with the progress of implementation of the Twinning Project and the novelties brought about by the new national law drafted in with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Law Enforcement Directive. Raising the awareness on the full practical realization of the citizens’ rights is an essential element of the activities of the NPOs and the Media, which helps strengthening the efficiency of democracy and the rule of law.

The event featured speakers from the Italian Data Protection Authority, the CSI-Piedmont in Italy, and the Commissioner’s Office.
