The Grand EU Data Protection Reform

A latest battle report by some key actors from Brussels

The current European data protection directive is from 1995, which was when the internet had not hit Brussels' decision-makers yet. Now, 17 years later, it is being completely re-writen. Will it meet the challenges of the age of big data? Will it have any effect on non-EU data hoarders? How will it deal with user-generated consent? What is this strange new "right to be forgotten"? And what about privacy by design?

The presentation will give you the latest insight into the substance and state of play, and a first glance of the upcoming political battles in Brussels. The presenters are working directly at the core of the reform, both in the European Parliament and in the European digital rights community.
