Austrian Business Circle: GDPR in Sweden

9. May 2018

An expert talk on a highly sensitive issue

Advantage Austria Stockholm together with the Swedish law office Wistrand organised an Austrian Business Circle regarding “GDPR in Sweden”. Numerous representatives from various industries (among others health industry, air transportation, and retail) participated to learn about Sweden’s approach and status concerning the EU-wide GDPR implementation as of 25th of May 2018. The lawyers Christel Rockström and Denis Ilecic were happy to share their knowledge and answer questions from the interested participants.

So far, not all parts of the regulation are implemented into Swedish law. Thus, there will be some grey areas during the time of transition. This is somewhat contradicting the general belief in Sweden being well advanced concerning digitalisation and related issues. How to handle the current situation and protect oneself from legal pitfalls was well presented by both expert lawyers to the thankful audience of the event.
