About the speaker:

Paulina Samovica is a young law graduate with a strong interest in data protection and privacy around the world. She has been part of the KNOWCO COLLABWITH legal team since May providing contractual assistance on the platform and content creation for the website.

Her knowledge regarding data protection stems from her most recent study titled “What implications does the GDPR have on third parties to the European Union? Is the GDPR leading the way for global data protection?”. This study explored the impact of General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) (GDPR) worldwide, its implementation and the extent of influence within non-European countries. Focusing on the political, economic and legal implications of the Brussels Effect in the US, Brazil, China and Russia, the study reflected that the adoption of common legislation illustrating the global influence of the GDPR. Her study concluded that the GDPR has been key for setting a global standard, emerging as the dominant framework due to its extraterritoriality effect, providing a competitive platform for compliance assisted by international frameworks.
