Eyal Sage, who heads our firm’s technology and IP practice participated at a joint Tel Aviv District Bar Association and Microsoft event aimed at raising awareness of privacy and data security issues at law firms.

 Participants included Adv. Amit Ashkenazi, the general counsel the National Cyber Directorate, Microsoft’s Israel General Counsel, Orly Friedman, and its Commercial Legal Lead, Ben Haklai.

 Adv. Sage compared the GDPR to Israel’s Protection of Privacy Law, and asserted that, in practical terms, the differences are minimal: “When you look at the details, it turns out that in most companies’ daily lives the gap is not between compliance with GDPR, but compliance with Israeli law, and lawyers are no different. Those who follow the Israeli law correctly come very close to be GDPR compliant.”
