In May 2018, the new EU regulation on general data protection will enter into force. This regulation entails a complete reformation of all European data protection and opens for signi cant fees for those who do not adhere to it. Globally, we are also facing large challenges, such as the approval of Privacy Shield.
Speakers at this conference include Max Schrems, an Austrian privacy activist. Max Schrems has become known for his case in the CJEU, where he successfully challenged the rules on Safe Harbor, leading to large practical challenges for companies and authorities in connection with transfer of personal data to the US. Now, he is also challenging the rules on standard contractual clauses for transfer of personal data to countries outside the EU/EES. We will also hear from Peter Schaar, former German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, and lots of other thought leaders in the privacy sphere.
Data protection and matters of privacy
are often handled as separate matters, but constitute a core question in innovation and digitalization.Whatever your industry eld, digitalization continues to revolutionize and data protection today is crucial for every form of operational and organizational development, and to ensure a competitive edge and growth.
During the past years, data protection has been highly debated in the EU. In the Nordic region, this debate has been less visible.
Therefore, Forum för Dataskydd is launching the conference Nordic Privacy Arena to create a Nordic arena for data protection matters and wants to invite you to participate.
At this conference, we gather experts in the data protection eld, representatives from public authorities and leading international experts, to discuss the effect of the European data protection regulation on the operations of companies and public authorities.We are making Nordic data protection known!
