European Digital Map

European Digital Map

Europe recognizes both the potential as well as the threats associated with the increasing digitalization of our lives.

The EU bodies make efforts to ensure Europe is a safe place, free of fake news, in which both personal and non-personal data are effectively protected. At the same time, these bodies struggle that the high level of the citizens’ protection does not stop European innovativeness. Having in mind the above, the EU Commission has announced the strategy for the European Digital Decade which results in consequential adoption of legal acts that compliment the already existing regulations of the digital sphere.

EY Law's mission is to prepare enterprises and, above all, entrepreneurs for the ongoing and upcoming digital changes. Therefore, we will explain all the rights and principles related to the European Digital Decade on an ongoing basis.
