Blockchain and Personal Data Protection

We are facing a remarkable growth of blockchain technologies. One of the main functionalities of this technology is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of (personal) data.

Blockchain is a decentralized and reliable database ensuring transaction immutability. However, there are two sides to every coin – both the functionality of a product and compliance with the regulatory requirements must be implemented. The purpose of the Law on Personal Data Protection (“Law”) is to protect the privacy and personal data of individuals.

This article written by JPM’s Partner Ivan Milošević and Senior Associate Katarina Savić addresses possible advantages and risks for the protection of privacy and personal data posed by blockchain technologies and manners of how to mitigate risks to protect the rights and freedoms of data subjects and other natural persons. Achieving compliance with the Law on Protection of Personal Data in the context of blockchain principles requires a synergy of experts possessing technical, legal, and organizational skills.
