Data Protection


The ever-growing accumulation and use of digital data raises legal challenges for private and public entities as regards data ownership, the cross-border use and the protection of these data. The conference will look at the EU legal framework and its loopholes, and offer a platform for discussion on how to adapt the framework to the European data economy.

Key topics

  • Free movement of data and the proposed EU Regulation on a framework for the free flow of non-personal data in the European Union (COM (2017)495)
  • The distinction between personal and non-personal data and their respective EU legal regimes in the online environment
  • A future EU framework for interoperability and standards, accessibility and reuse of public and publicly funded data, data sharing, and use of data for public-interest purposes
  • Competition law aspects related to data concentration and market power of online platforms
  • Intellectual property (including databases), trade secrets and other commercially confidential information in the era of big data
  • Future EU strategy on access, fair use and sharing of Big Data
  • Proposed EU e-Privacy Regulation: consequences for Big Data

Who should attend?

EU and national civil servants, lawyers specialised in intellectual property, IT, and data protection laws, in-house lawyers of entities collecting and selling data, data-based products and services, and connected devices.
