My name is Agnieszka Rapcewicz. I am an attorney-at-law with experience in providing legal assistance primarily to entrepreneurs – in the field of civil law commercial law, copyright, labour law and personal data protection. Since the beginning of 2018, I have been mainly involved in GDPR compliance audits, implementation of data protection rules in private, but also public entities, and extensive data protection consulting. I also act as a Data Protection Officer, conduct internal trainings for clients, as well as open webinars. I also have experience as a compliance officer for a company in the financial industry.
Data protection and privacy in the broadest sense are my passion. I am particularly interested in privacy issues in the use of new technologies, including artificial intelligence. I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals. I hold the Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) certification. I have also started to deal with data protection from the academic side, and am a participant in a legal doctoral seminar at the Leon Kozminski Academy in Warsaw. In the fall of 2022, I joined the initiative Internet. Czas działać! (Internet. Time to Act!), dedicated to fighting for the right to privacy and control over technology. In August 2023, the initiative turned into a foundation, of which I am co-founder and chairwoman of the supervisory board.
In my private life, I am a wife of Tomek, mother of Antek and Zosia, owner of two cats and a dog. In my free time (if there is any 😊) I travel, take photographs, read, go to the theater or watch old American movies (from the 1930s – 1950s).
