Founder of Vlănțoiu and Associates and lawyer with over 10 years of experience in commercial and labor law, Andreea Vlănțoiu has specialized since 2017 in the field of internet law and personal data protection (GDPR). Thus formalizing a passion for technology and related law, Andreea obtained two international certifications, as an expert in data protection legislation and personal data management.
With articles published in the national central press and the international specialized press, Andreea leads since 2020 the data protection division of the Wordwide Independent Lawyers League, an international organization with over 200 lawyers from 60 countries, ensuring the management of cross-border data protection projects.
Andreea initiated and coordinates within Romanian Business Leaders a project that aims to attract to Romania big companies from the USA and from the world targeted by the CJEU decision in the “Schrems 2” case, with the intention of leading to the creation of a sectoral country brand – ,,Romania, your Privacy Destination”. By implementing this initiative, Romania could become known worldwide as a resource of privacy and cyber security, with major economic and image benefits for the country.
Since the entry into force of the Regulation on the processing of personal data, Andreea has been involved in audit missions and GDPR implementation projects at companies with complex processing operations. The experience thus gained allowed her to later specialize in GDPR re-audit, ie the analysis of documents and procedures of companies in order to verify the degree to which compliance was achieved after completing a GDPR implementation program.
