Data Protection Webinars ’22 – 4 years: what prospects?

On the 25th of May, at 6:30 pm, the second webinar of the 2022 cycle focused on the GDPR’s 4th anniversary since its entry into force (on 28th May 2018), with an exercise of considering all the achievements and setbacks until now, while also analyzing the future prospects of the regulation and new legislative proposals. Professor Maria Graça Canto Moniz was the moderator of this special session, which had two exceptional guest lecturers:
