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.
