Ethics in the Digital Era

As part of this year's prestigious Computers, Privacy & Data Protection (CPDP) conference, the EDPS is hosting a panel discussion on Ethics in the Digital Era. Good data protection law and effective enforcement are necessary in our digital society. However, the exponential possibilities of digital technologies have challenged the principles of both data protection and privacy rights and have highlighted their limitations. Compliance with the law and data protection principles is important but it’s also important to explore what goes beyond them. As part of the international debate on the ethical dimension of data protection in the digital era, members of the Ethics Advisory Group (EAG), an independent group of experts, established by the EDPS will share the state of play of their deliberations. The panel discussion is a public event (you do not need to be CPDP ticketholders to attend) and will be held in Les Halles de Schaerbeek in Brussels from 6.30-7.30pm on Thursday 26 January 2017.
