Speaker – Maren Wienands
Maren Wienands is a Data Protection Officer and Project Manager for Data Protection at DataGuard. She studied law (University of Würzburg, University of Bern) and is a certified Data Protection Officer (TÜV Rheinland). Her studies in Germany and Switzerland have given her a comprehensive insight into the data protection challenges of transferring personal data to third countries beyond the EU borders. In particular, the focus was on informed consent and its limits as well as the problems of joint responsibility within cross-border contexts. By dealing with these topics in detail, she was able to gain both theoretical and practical insight into the entire subject of data protection. The experienced speaker regularly gives lectures focusing on the GDPR, how to deal with it, and how to implement it in practice.
