Data Protection (GDPR)

The significant modification in the field of data protection brough by the new European legislation (GDPR – 25 May 2018), generates essential changes in work procedures of Romanian companies, regardless of the area of activity.

The sanctions imposed by the new Regulation can reach the amount of 20 de million Euro or 4% of the annual worldwide turnover of the group of companies, whichever of the 2 is more onerous. These sanctions force companies to conform to the conditions imposed by the Regulation in order to maintain their specific activities.
