Brussels Privacy Hub workshop on the draft ePrivacy Regulation

GDPR Workshop Series: The ePrivacy Regulation: where are we at?

This workshop will aim to discuss new development and key contentious issues of the draft ePrivacy Regulation currently in the law-making process. This workshop is expected to build on findings and feedback of the Hub’s similar workshop on 27 October 2016, “What is to be done with the ePrivacy Directive?” Speakers representing the European Parliament, academia, the industry and civil society will present different aspects of the draft Regulation, before a general discussion with all participants takes place.

Brussels Privacy Hub lecture: The right to data portability

The right to data portability is listed among the most important novelties within the GDPR, both in terms of new control rights granted to data subjects and in terms of its intersection between data protection and other fields of law (for example, competition law, intellectual property, consumer protection, etc.). Despite of its internet social media origins, that perhaps continue to shape its public perception, the right to data portability, particularly if interpreted in an expansive manner, may find application in numerous fields and industries involved in personal data processing. Its exact content is, therefore, of crucial importance. This Brussels Privacy Hub lunchtime seminar is aimed at highlighting the raison d’ etre of this new right to data portability, its potential scope, as well as its relationship to other individual rights within the GDPR.
