GDPR-related regulatory modifications in Hungary

Hungary has enacted the Data Protection ‘Salad’ Act that modified 86 Hungarian acts regarding the deregulation and implementation of the GDPR, with the goal of bringing the Hungarian regulatory framework in line with the GDPR.

The most important changes include the retention for camera records (CCTV), whistleblowing, the retention period for documents related to employment relationships, private use of devices and platforms provided to employees by their employer, BYOD, criminal background checks, and the processing of biometric data for employment.
