MCCI 13 Oct 2017

The MCCI organized a Data Protection Workshop in collaboration with OTAM, AHRIM, MBA and Global Finance on 13th October 2017 at Hennessy Park Hotel. Mr. Raul Rikk, Estonian expert in Data Protection E-Governance and Cybersecurity and Mrs. Drudeisha Madhub, the Data Protection Commissioner of Mauritius, were the guest speakers during the event.


The workshop has been organized for business operators who are constantly facing increasing challenges due to diversification, intensification and globalisation of data processing and personal data flows.

During the half-day workshop, Mr. Raul Rikk elaborated on The New World Paradigm for Business: Data Protection and Cyber Security whilst Mrs. Drudeisha Madhub explained the opportunities and challenges of The New Data Protection Act which will be accessible to the public by May 2018.


The event saw the participation of about 150 participants who had the opportunity to interact with the speakers about their concerns on the subject.
