Over the course of 2019, VdA promoted a Cycle of Conversations - DPO Talks which, in the form of an executive breakfast, aims to promote the sharing of know-how between those responsible for data protection matters in organisations and specialists. The Cycle of Conversations includes 4 sessions on the topics with the greatest impact for organisations in terms of personal data management.

The second meeting, dedicated to the theme "DPIAs", will take place on 26 June, between 9:30 and 11:00 a.m., at VdA, in Lisbon, and will be coordinated and encouraged by partner Magda Cocco, coordinating associate Inês Antas de Barros, and senior associate Maria de Lurdes Gonçalves. The aim of this meeting is to discuss, in an informal environment, the main challenges encountered in the creation of a data protection impact assessment process, as well as the care to be taken in the preparation of the DPIA report].

The next meetings will be on "GDPR Footprints" (24 September) and "Audits: Be Prepared" (20 November).
