Plesner and KPMG invite you to a two-day course in data protection law using AI on the 15 January 2024 and 17 January 2024.

The use of AI gives rise to a wide range of questions in relation to law, governance, risk management, personal data protection, ethics, contracts and intellectual property rights.

In 2023, the Danish Data Protection Agency has established a "Technology" unit, mapped public authorities' use of AI and published guidance on public authorities' use of AI. The Danish Data Protection Agency stated in this connection that the agency will focus on the use of AI. Similarly, The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority has issued a report on data ethics when using AI in the financial sector.

The latest news within GDPR and AI is the EU's agreement on the AI Regulation, which fell politically into place on 8 December, 2023. Proofreading and translations are still needed, so formal adoption will only take place in a few months. After that, the regulation will apply 24 months later.

Although AI and the AI regulation have only come on the agenda in companies and authorities recently, there is already basic regulation in the form of GDPR and requirements for e.g. good practice, fairness, privacy by design and impact analyses. Hereto can be added challenges with contracts and intellectual property rights as well as the need for governance and risk management.

The AI regulation adds further regulation to the area - also for the users of AI.

Purpose and content of the course

Plesner and KPMG will shed light on the basic technical conditions, and then dive into the legal framework for the use of AI, and teach you to utilise AI's potential both legally and ethically correctly.

Since the development and operation of an AI solution is an iterative process consisting of several phases, we will start from governance, and from there adopt a phased approach to the relevant legal requirements and risks for each phase. In order to give the course participants the best prerequisites for using AI in practice, it will all take place in a practical context, and we naturally start with an approach to what AI actually is and how it can be used.

After the course you will:

  • have a basic understanding of AI and what it can do for your business
  • know the specific phases in the development and operation of AI and
  • be able to identify, understand and handle risks and the legal requirements in each phase.


Among a wide range of presenters, you will for example meet:

  • Bent Dalager, Partner and Head of Innovation & NewTech, KPMG
  • Frederik Siegumfeldt, Senior Manager in Digital Risk, KPMG
  • Barbara Isaksen, Manager in Innovation & NewTech, KPMG
  • Michael Hopp, lawyer, partner, Plesner
  • Allan Frank, IT-security specialist and cand.jur,  the Danish Data Protection Agency
