28 January is Data Protection Day. The date marks the anniversary of the Council of Europe’s Convention 108 on the protection of personal information, the first legally binding international law in the field of data protection, and is celebrated every year by the 47 countries of the Council of Europe as well as the EU institutions.
To mark the occasion the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) will be holding a lunchtime conference on the Internet of Things. The conference will take place on 10 February 2017 between 12 noon and 1.30pm in the European Parliament, room A3G-2. The conference is only open to trainees working at the European institutions but you can watch it live using our webstreaming service and interact with us on twitter using the hashtag #IoToasterEvent.
