Conference Agenda


EU, US, OECD and worldwide regulatory frameworks for privacy, data protection and IT law in general date back to the 90s and 80s or even earlier, long before social networks or even the internet itself appeared, bringing along a totally new quality of privacy risks. Together with the rising awareness for those risks, governments and regulators all over the world have started to create a new generation of governance, which is more and more influencing the way we use information. IT professionals today need to understand legal basics and should know, how the legal framworks will eveolve. Therefore, the legal aspects of privacy and data protection have become a key topic at EIC.
