Biography

Ovidiu started his journey into the data protection field later in 2018, just when GDPR was ready to enter into force. After seven years of working in the Law industry and as a fresh graduate of the Faculty of Law, he was looking to build his expertise in a new field related to law. This is how he went in the compliance area developing tough analytical skills in the field of data protection.

During the three years, while he actively practiced data protection, he provided services both as a private advisor and a Data Protection Officer to various industries, improving his compliance skills and getting familiarized with the corporate tools that are generally accepted by the market. During this period, he was very active in everything that was related to data protection, by participating in local conferences and interviews. He managed to get his national certification as a DPO through The Romanian Banking Institute and the international certification through PECB inc, where now he is also certified as a trainer.

Starting in January 2022, he moved his attention to business and joined Punto Iberca SRL as a shareholder and administrator. He is managing the company while he looks to put value on his fields of expertise, law, and data protection.

Starting this year, the company signed the reseller agreement with PECB, getting the right to sell the training and certifications in 33 states across Europe. This is how the corporate department was put in place, and new business perspectives have arisen.
