Regulation (EU) 679/2016 "General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)," together with Legislative Decree No. 196/2003 "Code on personal data" as amended by Legislative Decree No. 101/2018, define rules regarding the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and the free movement of data.

FBK is actively engaged in adapting to new regulatory obligations to ensure compliance with the GDPR. In this context, the Corruption, Transparency and Privacy Unit, ensures organizational-functional oversight and support in the area of personal data protection and supports FBK staff in GDPR compliance activities.

The Head of the Unit  -  Alessandro Dalla Torre - received special power of attorney so that he can represent FBK, committing it with his signature and issuing declarations, in the performance of the activities that fall within the competencies of the conferred role, being able in particular to ensure, on behalf of the Data Controller, the coordination of the aspects related to the legislation on the protection of personal data for the Foundation, including the power to sign Joint Controllership Agreements, appointments to Data Processors, internal appointments and communications, correspondence with the Data Protection Authority.
