EU Conference: Privacy and Protection of Personal Data

Date: 19/03/2012

The EU is currently reviewing its legal framework on data protection and this conference will contribute to reinforcing transatlantic dialogue at a time of concurrent policy and legislative initiatives in the EU and US. It will provide a forum for US and EU stakeholders from public and private sectors with comprehensive, precise and accurate information on EU data protection principles and the ongoing reform, focusing on commercial privacy, especially online.

The conference will also take stock of the operation of the EU-US Safe Harbour arrangement and discuss issues regarding its further development.

The main conference venue is in Washington DC. It will also be possible to participate from a conference room in Brussels via a two-way audio and video connection. The conference will be web cast.
