Smart Sharing - A Lunchtime Trainee Conference Data Protection Day

/file/16-01-15smartsharingimagedpd2016jpg_de16-01-15_smart_sharing_image_dpd2016.jpg

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 .

/file/16-01-15cpdpimagedpd2016jpg_de16-01-15_cpdp_image_dpd2016.jpg

The EDPS, as a premier sponsor of the CPDP conference, is delighted to once again be supporting this event, which EDPS Giovanni Buttarelli has described as the epicentre for creative ideas, sharp analysis and fierce debate on privacy and data protection.

The EDPS and Assistant Supervisor, as well as EDPS staff, will take part in various panels and activities during the three-day conference, which this year coincides with the tenth annual European Data Protection Day on 28 January. To mark the occasion, the EDPS plans to launch an ethics advisory group as part of a panel on Data, Dignity and Technology. The group will be charged with assessing the ethical implications of how personal information is defined and used in the big data world.

This panel will be followed in the evening by a live transatlantic discussion on big data, organised by the EDPS, the Council of Europe and the National Cyber Security Alliance. Register here to watch the discussion live online.

The EDPS, as supervisor of the EU institutions, will once again deliver the closing speech at the conference, where he will focus on 2016 as a landmark year for data protection, not only for the EU institutions, but for all individuals.

"Personal Information - Smarten Up!" Mittags-Konferenz zum 9. Europäischen Datenschutz-Tag, in Brüssel

/file/15-28-01dpd2015smartenupjpg_de15-28-01_dpd_2015_smarten_up.jpg

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.

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

/file/bfdi-edps-nrwjpg_debfdi-edps-nrw.jpg

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.

EU Data Protection Reform: Close to the finishing line
