Panel 1: Responding to New Technologies
One of the objectives for the GDPR was to update the existing regime to reflect technological developments since 1995. The panel will consider if the GDPR has achieved this objective and is it sufficiently ‘technology neutral’ to protect our personal data in the face of recent developments, such as AI and Big Data analytics.
Panel 2: Facilitating Data Flows
Our information economy is effectively borderless, while data protection regimes remain stubbornly national (and regional) and different across the world in critical ways. This panel will examine the notion of ‘adequacy’ under the GDPR and the tools made available to ensure the free flow of data between trading partners.
