Event Overview

Technological progress and globalisation have profoundly changed the way our data is collected, accessed and used. In addition, the EU Member States have implemented the 1995 Data Protection Directive differently, resulting in divergences in enforcement; hence, the need to have significant legislative reforms: (A) The General Data Protection Regulation will enable people to better control their personal data. At the same time modernised and unified rules will allow businesses to make the most of the opportunities of the Digital Single Market; and (B) The Data Protection Directive for the police and criminal justice sector will ensure that the data of victims, witnesses, and suspects of crimes, are duly protected in the context of a criminal investigation or a law enforcement action. While the Regulation will become effective as from 25 May 2018, EU Member States should transpose the Directive by 6 May 2018. All parties are to have geared up and implemented the necessary changes to their systems, in an effort to ensure compliance and steer away from the hefty penalties that are introduced.

 He commenced his professional career at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and later joined Lombard Bank Malta plc, a well-established and highly reputable local retail credit institution, where he helped set up and consolidate the Compliance, Risk Management and MLRO functions. He then moved on to Middlesea Insurance plc (part of the MAPFRE Group), where he has provided Compliance and Company Secretarial services to Maltese insurance and reinsurance companies that passport their products and services in the European Union. Thereafter, Stefan has been serving as Company Secretary, in-house Legal Counsel, Compliance Officer and MLRO with a number of MFSA-licenced institutions, authorised to passport their FinServ products and services to other EU Member States.
