Providing legal guidance for Tele2 in ensuring protection of personal data

In 2019, Iškauskas and his colleagues assisted Tele2, one of the country’s leading telecommunications operators, to develop a GDPR-compliant strategy and provided legal advice on related issues.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation that took legal effect in 2018 requires that the processing of personal data have a legitimate purpose and a legal basis, otherwise it may be deemed illegal and the data controller may be held liable.

As one of the leading telecommunications operators, Tele2 processes different types of personal data for different purposes and on different legal bases, thus legal counselling and the GDPR-compliant strategy helped the company to prevent potential risks relating to data processing. Iškauskas implemented the project together with WINT’s expert Dijana Šinkūnienė.
