The saying that “knowledge is power” is very true. I have acquired extensive experience working for the State Data Protection Inspectorate. During this time, I  performed surveillance of the activities of economic operators, prepared and coordinated draft regulations, and implemented the directly applicable provisions of EU law. I have been involved in tackling issues faced by the banking, insurance, debt collection, telecommunications, IT and other sectors in relation to the implementation of the requirements for the protection of personal data and privacy. I have advised the data protection authorities and the representatives of both public and private sectors of Ukraine, Kosovo and Macedonia on matters concerning the implementation of the requirements for the protection of personal data. I have also provided expert advice to Tele2, a leading player in the telecommunications market, in tackling these issues.

I am happy to be able to share my professional experience in order to assist others: I provide consultations to the representatives of e-commerce, mobile app development, electronic communications and healthcare sectors, ministries and other state institutions. I am a regular speaker at conferences. Moreover, I conduct trainings for both public and private sectors.

In my free time, I enjoy travelling and have already visited a great many countries.
