The collection, use, and protection of personal data is a big issue these days. On May 25th, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. It represents changes for a lot of companies and organizations and has implications on IST Austria as well. Svenja Kutnig and Tamara Pusch will explain how the GDPR is applied and how the project was set-up at IST Austria, as well as what the GDPR means for you as a private citizen and your personal data. The project serves as an example of how project management standards and tools can be applied.
