4. What do Group meetings look like? How often do they take place?

Meetings focus on the nuts-and-bolts of DP governance and improvement of processing activities, including discussion on best practices to meet legal and regulatory requirements, how to effectively implement technical and organisational measure to adequately protect personal data, and how to respond to client’s expectations.

This format is designed to enable members to get up to speed with the upcoming challenges and at the same time to manage current obligations, hear from other organisations, and engage in discussion around topics of interest. Participants can post questions and share lessons learned from their own experiences.
