EDPS-BEUC Conference on Big Data: individual rights and smart enforcement - 29 September 2016

Technology disrupts all aspects of our lives - in good ways and bad. Meanwhile, basic rights such as privacy, freedom of expression and non-discrimination are under unprecedented strain. Big Data and the Internet of Things bring policy, regulatory and enforcement challenges that require a holistic approach to ensure that the rights and interests of individuals are safeguarded in the coming decades. 

The EDPS, in collaboration with European consumer organisation BEUC, is hosting a joint conference on Big Data: individual rights and smart enforcement in Brussels on Thursday 29 September 2016. The conference will include panels on online platforms, smart technologies and the Digital Single Market. Speakers include EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager, Federal Trade Commissoner Terrell McSweeny, BEUC Director General Monique Goyens and European Data Protection Supervisor, Giovanni Buttarelli.

This high level conference will bring together leading regulators and experts in the competition, data protection and consumer protection spheres to discuss key areas of economic and societal change, to promote closer dialogue and cooperation among regulatory and enforcement bodies and explore how to better respond to the challenges our society is facing.

To register, send an email to EDPS-Events@edps.europa.eu no later than Monday 12 September. Registration will be on a first come, first served basis.

The event will be webstreamed live.

You can find out more about EDPS work on big data on the EDPS website.

Data Protection in Financial Technology (FinTech), Insurance, and Medical Services: a New Regulation and Perspectives - 30 September-1 October 2016

The Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA) will hold a two-day seminar on data protection in the FinTech, insurance and medical services sectors. Hosted by the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, the event is open to both lawyers and non-lawyers and will take place between 30 September and 1 October 2016.

The FinTech, insurance and medical services sectors all face common challenges when dealing with particularly sensitive data. While big data and new technologies have created new opportunities for these sectors, these developments also raise significant data protection concerns. The seminar will explore the challenges of finding a balance between the adoption of these new technologies, the search for competitiveness and the need to protect personal data, and how we can address them. Conclusions will be presented by European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Buttarelli alongside Dean Spielmann, a judge at the General Court of the European Union.

More information on the event and how to register can be found in the event programme.

Digital Festival - 21 June 2016

 

 
Digital Festival 2016 takes place at The Egg in Brussels on 21 June 2016. This festival of ideas provides an opportunity to challenge and better understand the impact and potential of digital technologies.

As part of the festival, the EDPS has organised a workshop entitled Data Protection by Design: Privacy as an engineering principle. As people become increasingly aware of the threat of mass surveillance, the demand for more privacy friendly technologies is increasing. In the EU, data protection by design and by default will soon become a legal obligation, under the new data protection rules to be applied by May 2018. The workshop will address the different approaches to privacy engineering, the current challenges faced and initiatives, such as the Internet Privacy Engineering Network (IPEN), which aim to overcome these challenges.

The workshop takes place from 2.45pm-4pm and will be moderated by EDPS IT specialist Achim Klabunde. Confirmed speakers include Aurelie Pols, Estelle Masse, Jetzabel Serna and Aristotelis Tzafalias. To attend, please register online for the Digital Festival.

2016 EDPS-Civil Society Summit - 16 June 2016

For the second year, the EDPS met with civil society organisations to discuss the state of data protection and privacy in the EU. On the agenda this year was the implementation of the GDPR and the directive on data protection rules for the police and criminal justice, the review of the ePrivacy Directive, and developments in case law in the last 12 months, notably Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner and the proposed Privacy Shield agreement. 

The meeting took place at the EDPS premises in Brussels from 9.30am-12.30pm. If you have any questions, please write to us at edps@edps.europa.eu with '2016 EDPS- Civil Society Summit' in the subject line, and we will send you further details about the event.

DPO-EDPS meeting – 28 April 2016

For a number of years, the DPOs in the EU institutions and bodies have met at regular intervals to share common experiences and discuss horizontal issues.

These meetings are also an opportunity for the EDPS to present our policies and activities to DPOs. The upcoming DPO meeting at Eurofound in Dublin on 28 April 2016 will include discussions on the EDPS' e-communications guidelines, staff appraisal, whistleblowing and cloud computing.

Smart Sharing - A Lunchtime Trainee Conference
Data Protection Day - 28 January 2016

Smart Sharing Event Poster

Technological development implies bigger opportunities but also bigger challenges when it comes to data protection. In their daily lives, people constantly share information, whether they are using a tablet, searching online or communicating through social media.

However, are they really in control of the personal data they are sharing? Do they know how their personal information is processed by others? While data subjects are knowingly sharing their data online, they may be unaware of the long-term effects of their activities and the e-reputation they are building.

At this exclusive lunchtime conference for EU institution trainees, the EDPS will give you an insight into the world of data protection and provide the tools to help you stay in control of your personal information. The conference will be webstreamed and everyone can get involved in the debate through Twitter #DataProtectionDay .

 Renseignements personnels - Ressaisis-toi! Bannière Affiche

In a ranking of importance to people’s daily lives, the smartphone surged to the top, falling below only the Internet and personal hygiene. Given the sensitive data stored on smartphones, from pictures and contacts information to bank details, PINs, and medical information, special care should be given to securing them against any harm, both online (data theft) and offline (stolen).


At this exclusive conference, the EDPS will outline risks to your personal data and how you can better protect your data on your smart devices. The event will be streamed live and everyone can get involved in the conversation with the Supervisors and panellists through Twitter #EDPD2015        

The web streaming is available here.

Programme of the conference.

"Three years EU data protection reform: state of play and perspectives", 5 November 2014, Brussels

 Trois ans de réforme de protection européenne des données - Logos

The recent rulings of the European Court of Justice concerning data retention and search engines (Google Spain) illustrate the increasing relevance of the fundamental rights to privacy and to the protection of personal data in the context of new information services and data transfers in a global world.

Against the background of rapid technological developments and the growing reality of ubiquitous surveillance of personal data by private and public entities alike, the European Union is striving for new rules to effectively protect personal data also in the 21st century.

Andrea Voβhoff, the German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, and Peter Hustinx, the European Data Protection Supervisor, have the pleasure to invite high-level representatives of all institutional and political actors involved to debate outstanding issues and necessary steps to be taken to bring the reform of EU data protection law to a timely and successful conclusion.
