At Russian Gaming Week 2021, the Founder of DPO LLC Siarhey Varankevich Will Talk About the GDPR in Gambling

The global General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in effect since 2018. It regulates the processes of transferring, processing and storing personal information of the European Union citizens and other persons on its territory. Violators of the established requirements face serious penalties.

How is GDPR applied in the gambling industry? And how can online gambling operators use their clients' data without violating the regulations? On April 27, answers to these questions will be provided by the founder of DPO LLC Siarhey Varankevich who will make a meaningful presentation at Russian Gaming Week 2021 conference.

The speaker will cover the topic “Solving the GDPR puzzle in an online casino”.

The expert will analyze who is subject to the regulations and how can it influence the work of gambling operators. Using the case of a potential online casino, he will explain whether it is possible to combat cheating with the help of GDPR and how to comply with the ban on the collection of sensitive data. Siarhey will recommend how to start implementing the requirements and analyze why the choice between losing a gambling license and paying a 20 millionth GDPR fine is really a false choice.
