47 countries of the Council of Europe as well as European institutions, agencies and bodies will celebrate the tenth annual European Data Protection Day. This 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.
The EDPS will mark the date with a series of events, including a conference co-hosted by the European Parliament and the EDPS for EU officials on the EU data protection reform (webstreaming available here from 10am) and a lunch conference on Smart Sharing. Also taking place will be the annual CPDP conference, featuring various presentations by EDPS experts as well as a panel, hosted by the EDPS, on Data, Dignity and Technology - Exploring Digital Ethics.
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 for free to watch the discussion live online.
