From May 7 – 9, 2014, EuroPriSe held its biannual Expert Workshops in Vienna. More than 30 privacy professionals attended the workshops addressed to future as well as already accredited EuroPriSe Experts.
The first two days were dedicated to the training of future EuroPriSe Experts: Seven participants from five European countries attended the EuroPriSe Expert Admission Workshop. It was the 13th workshop of its kind since 2007 when EuroPriSe held its first workshop at the very same place at the premises of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in the heart of Vienna. Workshop participants will be accredited as EuroPriSe Experts if they manage the task of writing a high quality evaluation report on a training service that was introduced to them during the workshop.
On May 9, more than 30 persons attended the EuroPriSe Expert Enhancement Workshop. Participants were informed about EuroPriSe Best Practice, recent case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union as well as recent opinions of the so-called Article 29 Working Party. Most of the participants were accredited EuroPriSe Experts who could benefit from a prolongation of their accreditation by three years (as a result of attending the workshop).
The next EuroPriSe Expert Workshops will be held in London this fall: https://www.european-privacy-seal.eu/ws/EPS-en/Expert-Admission-Workshops
