Experts from UEPA and Simac Technik ČR made a presentation on the new EU personal data protection law introduced by the GDPR on the main stage of the 4th Congress for Aesthetic and Laser Medicine in Prague on 2 June 2017. This is a very important issue for doctors and other medical personnel, as they collect and administer extremely sensitive data of their patients.
Within their presentation block, Mgr. Lucie Hladěnková, LL.M. from UEPA spoke on the legal and Ing. David Kučera from Simac Technik ČR spoke on the technical aspects of the GDPR. We also organised a one-hour workshop chaired by Mgr. Bc. Tomáš Mudra, where we demonstrated to the participants, by examples based upon real-life situations, the weak points of personal data protection in health care and ways of addressing them.
