Few topics are discussed as controversially as the GDPR by experts around the globe. However, Data privacy is crucial for sustainable innovations in the industry and society of today. The confidentiality of data was one of the most important shifts in the data protection framework that has changed people’s view on privacy. After all those changes, the upcoming e-privacy regulation raises numerous questions and tasks for companies and privacy experts, working within the European Union and across the globe.

New technologies – like AI, Big Data, Cloud Computing or Blockchain – promise enormous opportunities. We examined and discussed all these aspects and challenges together with 1,000 leading privacy experts from various Data Protection Authorities, global companies, outstanding startups, and policy makers.

• GDPR Compliance
• Data Security
• The Data Economy
• New Technologies
• Global Data Protection Framework
