Summary

The Annual European Data Protection and Privacy Conference will return to Brussels on 20 March. Gathering over 200 cross-sector delegates and attracting an impressive line-up of top-level speakers every year, this event has become the must-attend annual data protection and privacy conference held in Brussels.

 

2018 was a pivotal year for data protection and privacy in both the EU and globally. The 9th European Data Protection and Privacy Conference will explore how the power of data can truly be harnessed through trust and responsible use, in order to deliver economic growth and societal benefits. It will also debate how an international system based on shared principles and ethics might be developed – all in the context of increasing technological innovation, on-going regulatory discussions in the EU around digital evidence and ePrivacy, and other global political developments that either distract from or give focus to such developments.
