The recalibrated legal framework in the EU as manifested by the promulgation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is key in an effort to better control the processing of personal data. Additionally, the forthcoming Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications is expected to give new impetus to the way privacy is protected in electronic communications. Even the best legislative efforts cannot keep up to speed with the pace of innovative technology and business models that challenge the way personal data is processed and privacy is protected across the EU and beyond; therefore, examining what is at stake and where threats thereto originate from becomes of paramount importance.
As part of these discussions, the Annual Privacy Forum 2018, organized by DG CONNECT, ENISA, the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and Telefónica will host a TRUESSEC.EU debate on the Privacy, Security and Trust in the Cloud, with expert from industry and academia.
The Annual Privacy Forum 2018 will be held on 13-14 June 2018 at Telefónica I+D center, Torre Telefónica Diagonal 00 Plaza de Ernest Lluch i Martín, 5 08019 – Barcelona.
