Is your organization GDPR ready?

eHealth Hub presents “Practical steps to Data Protection compliance”

Join eHealth Hub during eHealth Tallinn 2017 for an interactive session to introduce businesses and entrepreneurs to the new online data and privacy landscape.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into force on 25 May 2018. It strengthens the rights of European citizens concerning their personal data and therefore puts requirements on every organization that is controlling or processing this data. In this regulation the European Union puts special attention to genetic, biometric and in general any health data of individuals.

The workshop explores how European data protection laws impact the collection and processing of data, thereby affecting you. You’ll get a detailed understanding of how to adhere to data protection standards whilst maintaining your start-up’s commercial goals.


Our target

Organisations and institutions working with and supporting start-ups, SMEs and entrepreneurs.



17th October 2017, 11:00- 12.30 (including Q&A) @Health Tallin 2017.



This workshop will cover:

  1. an overview of the EU data protection & online privacy standards,
  2. compliance requirements and fines,
  3. current and most common data protection mistakes and unfit privacy practices.
