Computer, Privacy & Data Protection CPDP conference 2015

Facebook Twitter

The CDPD, Computer Privacy & Data Protection, conference is one of the major annual privacy conference.

Originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University, it is not an exaggeration to say that the 'CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. In 2014 '854 guests including 343 speakers from 43 different countries dispersed over more than 60 panels which took place during three full days. It attracted another 500 people in several public evening events... this year's main topical themes were: Data Protection Reform: European and Global Developments, Mobility (mobile technologies, wearable technologies, border surveillance), EU-US developments concerning the regulation of government surveillance, Health, privacy and data protection, Love and lust in the digital age, Internet governance and privacy.

I recently published a short article on LinkedIn, 'Bigger than Big Data, Processed Information is Gold' on the usefulness of the storage and classification of information. The multiple topics developed during this conference was the subject of my latest curation. Using the Pearltrees application, I have started gathering all publications around this event. They are published papers, programs, pictures or tweets. Progressively I will be able to add more papers and interventions published during this conference. All this can be shareable and accessible at anytime, from anywhere on any digital device, be it a smartphone, a tablette or a computer. The content is easily modifiable, completed or shared.

Research and results | Privacy and Security Mirrors. Work package 1 – Developing a common research framework For most citizens, the meaning of privacy and security seems obvious because they have an implicit feeling about them that some may call “common sense”. However, both are colourful notions. This becomes evident when looking at the definition of the terms and their framing in different scientific disciplines. Therefore, a clear understanding of the terminology and the research questions is necessary. This work package will develop a common understanding of the research questions and the terminology used in PRISMS; plan in detail subsequent work packages so that there is congruence of approach of the partners’ work and, develop a conceptual frame leading to the ultimate development of a decision support system.

Work package 2 – Analysis of security and privacy technologies Work package 3 – Policy assessment of security and privacy Work package 4 – Criminological analysis Work package 6 – Privacy and Security in the Media.

Albrech optimistic about 2015 deadline for EU DP Regulation - Privacy Laws & Business. Jan Albrecht, MEP and data protection rapporteur at the European Parliament on the draft EU DP Regulation is optimistic about the Council reaching its negotiating position by this summer.

"I am optimistic that we can reach a solution in 2015. But if the Council wants a swift compromise with us, they need to deliver on individual rights," Albrecht said at the CPDP conference in Brussels on 22 January. Albrect said that as the Parliament's position is already a compromise between many stakeholders, it is willing to negotiate on many points but now the parties need to talk about the detail, not go back to the principles. No legislation will ever be perfect but it is urgent to make progress, he said. Albrecht said that the best subsidy for EU IT companies is to have the regulation adopted, as it would be a competitive disadvantage for Europe to have 28 different data protection regimes. The delay means a loss of economic power for EU companies, and loss of citizens' rights. CPDP Conference 2015: Demonstrating Accountability.

Current state of affairs A new year, a new CPDP Conference (Computers, Privacy & Data Protection, 21-23 January 2015). In the past 12 months we have seen privacy and data protection issues taking a much more prominent role in many different internet policy discussions. One of the key examples in this regard is the so-called Google Spain case by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU). Acknowledging the right of individuals to ask search engines to delist certain name-based search results, the ruling sent shockwaves through internet policy circles. If anything, the case has made us all re-think the balance between different fundamental rights and interests, the allegedly ‘neutral’ role of search engines and the extra-territorial reach of local regulations.

Unsurprisingly, the Google Spain ruling is usually talked about against the backdrop of the so-called ‘Right to be Forgotten’. Some thoughts on balancing Conclusion. Albrech optimistic about 2015 deadline for EU DP Regulation - Privacy Laws & Business. Why trade is not the place for the EU to negotiate privacy. Argument for including privacy in trade agreements The basic argument for including privacy in trade agreements is twofold. First, trade agreements attempt to lower barriers between regimes and reduce the friction inherent in conducting transnational business.

Thus trade agreements already contain many attempts at regulatory harmonisation, or at least constructing interfaces between regulatory regimes. There is an exception to regulatory harmonisation at the World Trade Organisation that specifically addresses privacy, but a new free trade agreement could negotiate around this exception.[7] Second, trade agreements do involve a more formal negotiating process than, say, the Safe Harbor.

If a more extended process leads to consensus building, then perhaps the EU and the US could arrive at a better compromise through trade. EU representatives are rightly sceptical of negotiating data protection in the free trade regime. Transborder Data Flows and Data Privacy Law: Hardback: Christopher.

As the value of facial identifiability has risen, abstracted forms and representations of faces have become increasingly common in artistic production. Following the events of 9/11, images of masked faces of terrorists became dominant in the media; repeated as a ghostly, unknown presence that reminds us of the unsafe time we live in.

CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. Within an atmosphere of independence and mutual respect, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, computer scientists and civil society from all over the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends.

This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world. The panels of CPDP2015 will focus on key issues that cover all current debates: the data protection reform in the EU: European and Global developments, mobility (mobile technologies, wearable technologies, border surveillance), EU-US developments concerning the regulation of government surveillance, e-health, love and lust in the digital age, internet governance and privacy, and much, much more. Addressing the right to privacy in 2015. One of the concrete ways in which internet users can exercise their right to privacy is through the use of encrypted communications, which can provide some guarantee of confidentiality in an environment of pervasive digital surveillance. In this sense, encryption serves as a form of protection for fundamental human rights. 2014 brought a cluster of new consumer products and open source projects aiming to make the use of encrypted communications easier to use and more readily available to a wider swath of people than ever before.

Yet the legal use of privacy enhancing technologies and even the perfectly legitimate demonstration of interest in the pursuit of privacy is being marginalised across the globe. Over the last decade, the human rights sector has witnessed a dramatic uptick in the use of digital surveillance to harass, intimidate, and perpetrate physical violence against those fighting for the protection of fundamental rights.

Top US privacy bod: EU should STOP appeasing whiny consumers. A top US law enforcement commissioner has claimed European data protection authorities are too worried about helping consumers instead of robustly enforcing privacy laws. Speaking at CPDP2015 in Brussels, Julie Brill, privacy commissioner for the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) defended the US approach to protecting privacy. “European data protection authorities are too focussed on individual cases and can’t see the bigger picture,” she said. “If you rely entirely on complaints, you will always focus on consumer-facing companies and I think that’s a problem.”

“We at the FTC get our cases from all sources including newspaper articles or even competitors,” continued Brill. “A great data protection law is no good if you don’t enforce it.”. Paul Nemitz, a director in the European Commission’s justice department, didn’t tackle Brill's accusation directly, but countered by slamming the US' refusal to give EU citizens equal data protection.
