Živković Samardžić advises Halkbank a.d. Beograd on privacy compliance and records management issues

by ZS Law

Živković Samardžić, one of Serbia’s leading full-service independent law firms, has advised HALKBANK a.d. Beograd, subsidiary of Turkish HALKBANK, sixth largest bank in Turkey in terms of assets, on harmonization of their operations with the new Law on Personal Data Protection, which included review of relevant internal documents and policies, as well as the drafting of the new ones, where it was necessary.

Živković Samardžić team that has been working on the assignment closely alongside the HALKBANK a.d. Beograd team, was led by Ana Popović, Partner, Ivan Ljubisavljević, Senior Associate, and Milica Cicmil, Associate.

The privacy compliance was a prevalent business concern in Serbia this summer, due to the fact that the implementation of the new Law on Personal Data Protection, adopted last November and modelled after the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), has commenced as of August 21th, 2019. Should your company need more information on how to manage data, develop document retention strategies and achieve privacy compliance, contact Ivan Ljubisavljević, Živković Samardžić  Senior Associate, or any of your regular contacts at Živković Samardžić.
