On 22 June 2023, the 5th meeting of Data Protection Officers in the healthcare sector, organised by the Czech Data Protection Association, took place in Jindřichův Hradec.
The event focused on the current interpretation of widely discussed topics in the field of personal data protection, such as the right of the data subject to access his or her personal data under Article 15 of the GDPR, health data sharing and the upcoming changes introduced by the EHDS Regulation, the deployment of camera systems in light of the methodology of the Office of the Data Protection Office, the audit activities of DPOs in hospitals or risk analysis.
