My job is to get involved any time law intersects with data protection and cyber security. I work as a consultant and assist leading professionals and companies to address issues that standard in-house IT and legal experts cannot cover due to the limits of their professional perspective. I help my clients and their legal and IT experts comply with, among other issues, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that substantially changes the rules of personal data protection from 2018, and introduces massive penalties for breaching them.
I am a member of the Working Group for the personal data protection legislation at the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic. In the past, I worked as a Czech consul in Canada, and later on, I managed the Central-European legal divisions of multinational companies, such as Kimberly-Clark and Mondelēz. As a result, I have the thorough understanding of European Institutions and companies that is needed to prepare them for the sweeping legislative changes prompted by the advance of new technologies.
