Find Clarity
At the Congress

You’ve heard about the GDPR, you’ve talked about the GDPR, now you’re ready to do something about the GDPR.

The IAPP European Data Protection Congress 2017 takes a solution-focused approach with GDPR-oriented programming to help you devise and execute a compliance strategy.

At the same time, we’ll keep you up-to-date on other key privacy issues. Non-GDPR sessions will address privacy by design, a fresh look at privacy impact statements, data breach bootcamp, mHealth, Privacy Shield, big data, profiling, data retention policies and more.

As the public policy debate rages regarding just how much surveillance is enough, Hubertus Knabe offers the perspective of history as he explores the methods of the East German Stasi and recalls his own attempts to smuggle banned books into East Germany.

Marju Lauristin

MEP, Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats

All eyes will be on MEP Lauristin as she serves as rapporteur for the EU's new ePrivacy Regulation, which some people think will have more impact than the GDPR.
