Igor Němec

Dr. Igor Němec studied numerical mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University in Prague. He started his career as an analyst and later worked on software development. He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies of the former ČSSR. This started his long-term political career. He became a minister in several governments; from 1996 to1997 he led the Office for the State Information System. After that he returned to politics and in 2002 was Mayor of the City of Prague for a short period of time. He has been the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection since 2005, and is currently in his second term of office.




The data protection reforms in the EU – an opportunity and a challenge

The protection of personal data in the EU is currently undergoing a revision that should become a model throughout the world. This will be the most significant change over the last twenty years. Dr. Němec will present the main cornerstones of the revision, explain what it will bring and what it will mean for individuals, companies, organizations and privacy regulatory bodies. Both documents (the General Directive on data protection and police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters regulations) were approved by a vote in the European Parliament by 12 March 2014. This was another tangible step towards the final approval of both documents. The speaker will also share his opinion about when the revised documents will come into force.
