Access presentations from Congress 2023
The GDPR's five-year anniversary provided an abundance of discussion, especially regarding the current responsibilities and expectations of a data protection officer.
Discussions also took place on how to respond to enforcement actions considering increasingly complex global policies.
New strategies in adtech presented the opportunity to consider building governance strategies and protections for at-risk groups, while workshops on consent provided a broader adtech privacy snapshot.
Keynote speakers, panels and breakout sessions led conversations on strategic developments in regional and international data protection, but also the impact that new technologies can have on human creativity, perceptions and human rights. Regarding the expansion of AI technology in various industries, a common thread among this year's keynotes was that there is a need for human governance and awareness when it comes to allocating resources, legislation and implementing operational strategies.
We were proud to announce the IAPP Vanguard Award winner for the EMEA region at Congress: Ernst-Oliver Wilhelm, CPO, GFT Technologies SE. The Vanguard Awards honor privacy professionals from five geographical regions whose pioneering work is helping to shape the future of privacy and data protection.
