Joining business, legal and technical perspectives

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strengthens and unifies data protection regulations for individuals within the European Union. Starting from May 2018, all companies operating within the EU need to comply. Failure to do so can result in penalties of 4% of their worldwide turnover. Despite the urgency of industry adoption, many companies struggle to grasp the concrete impact of the GDPR. Additionally, legal and technological support to implement the GDPR in practice are lacking.

Last chance to ask everything you wanted to know about GDPR implementation!

What are the key changes compared to the current privacy legislation and how should we interpret these newly introduced concepts? Are there methodological approaches and principles to achieve privacy by design and data protection by design? What are appropriate technical measures to fulfill the GDPR requirements?

In this theme session, we approach these GDPR challenges both from a legal and technical perspective. Speakers from both academia and industry will provide their insights.

Target Audience

Executive managers, business managers, business and system analysts, and software architects.
