On 28 February 2017, the BPCC Kraków Branch held a training session entitled A practical guide in the world of everyday traps in IT in companies in cooperation with two member companies who operate in the area of data security in the internet. The training took place in a newly-opened hotel and new BPCC member, Mercure Kraków Stare Miasto.

Michał Czarnocki, board member of SafeLaw and Anna Buczyńska-Borowy, operations director, DPO  of Omnitec, carried out the training.

Issues presented included: who is the owner of the content of the e-mail correspondence and the attachments; who can read it and where; who can store, analyse and publish it without the proper knowledge and approval and how it is treated by our company. Why has one of the banks present in Poland recently banned the use of SMS among its employees? How is it that one of the most popular messaging services, provided by one of the five biggest IT firms, managed to be easily hacked, despite assurances that it is safe? When configuring access to business e-mail box on a private tablet, are we doing something wrong? How should we react when we receive an offer, that we have not ordered? A crucial part of the training were video clips showing how easy it is to steal someone`s identity and how important encryption is as one of the few effective methods  of protecting our own data.

Participants were also given a possibility to purchase the Safreum system at special rates thank to the promotional codes given to participants during the workshop.  

In addition, the extremely important regulatory changes in the area of processing of personal data (new EU Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 – known by its Polish acronym, RODO), were also presented during the meeting. The most important aspects of the implementation of the requirements of the RODO law, as it affects business processes were set out, particularly in the area of management and security of data in IT infrastructure, the flow of data in computer systems, and the vital role that the IT system administrator and data protection supervisor have to play.

All these efforts help businesses prepare their teams to implement the upcoming changes in the area of managing confidentiality, privacy, protection of personal data in relationships with clients and counterparties.
