  • 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 significant 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 field, 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 field, 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!

  • Big data is all the rage these days. Employing increasingly sophisticated algorithms and artificial intelligence technologies, businesses and governments are enthusiastically using big data to solve problems and create value. At the same time, individuals are increasingly worried about how massive data collection and analysis will impact their privacy, and whether companies and governments will use it fairly. Do we need ground rules to encourage the many benefits, and reduce the risks, of our new algorithmic society? If so, can government set such rules consistent with the First Amendment?

    Jack Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School, will explore these questions on Thursday, Oct. 27, in a distinguished lecture at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law titled “The Three Laws of Robotics in the Age of Big Data.” Professor Frank Pasquale of the University of Maryland School of Law, author of a leading book on big data law and policy, will comment on Balkin’s lecture and engage him in dialogue. Following the lecture, the audience is invited to a public reception with Professors Balkin and Pasquale.

    With generous support from the law firm of Sidley Austin LLP, the Moritz College of Law will offer this distinguished lecture annually. We invite you to join us and be a part of the conversation.

  • For decades, information security functions have fought for the responsibility to monitor the flow of information through the organization, in paper and digital formats, throughout its entire life cycle, and to determine the existence and accuracy of data classification. This effort has largely been successful. However, if all data flows through security’s filters, it is incumbent upon security professionals to implement the proper controls to ensure personal data is properly collected for its intended use, either to own that responsibility or, at a minimum, to flag potential issues for compliance, marketing and privacy functions. These types of considerations are new to many in the security profession, and this situation is creating an environment rife with blind spots. In this session, we’ll explore the top blind spots and how to mitigate them. Be sure to join on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 1 ET
