Privacy & Security in the Next Century

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 14, 2020 TIME: 15:30-16:30 LOCATION: AMMERSEE I


Consent has been and remains the principal option for most companies to process personal data in a lawful manner. As such, most user experiences are designed to quickly elicit broad consent from individuals without them reading or understanding what they have consented to. As a result, people are exposed to the growing risk of experiencing undesired use of their data and related negative consequences affecting their lives and relationships.

Consent is the most valuable leverage people have left. One emerging opportunity is the power of individuals to selectively withhold or withdraw consent. In this session, James Aschberger will outline how individuals can easily issue-specific consent restrictions to data controllers and processors. Because people are very clear on what they do not want to happen with their personal data.

This can become a major stumbling block for many businesses, as valid consent restrictions can significantly impact marketing and customer engagement opportunities and alter relationships with service providers. Or it can become a key enabler for companies to thrive in the data-driven economy with the right tools.

Join this session to get insights into a new approach in which both people and companies can benefit from the use of personal data without the fear of adverse consequences based on the simplification of consent management.
