In this training session, experts explain the similarities and differences between GDPR and CCPA, helping participants prepare their organizations to comply with both.

Special focus will be placed on the challenges for Israeli companies, which often need to implement both US and EU laws in addition to local privacy and data security regulations.

Topics will include a scope of application; definitions; notice requirements; individual rights; incident response; and more.

  • What are the incentives for manufacturers and software developers to implement privacy and security by design in their goods or services and keep security up to date?
  • Is there evidence that the market is able to provide efficient levels of privacy and data security?

Information on how to submit a presentation can be found in the call for presentationsThe deadline for submissions is March 15, 2019.

ITPI: Privacy, Security, and Competition in a Digital Economy @ Tel Aviv University Jaglom Auditorium | 0

About the Event

Over the past decades, technology companies have created immense economic value through advances in computing and communications, the Internet and mobile, connected devices and the Internet of Things.

These innovations have revolutionized industry sectors ranging from telecoms and media to healthcare, finance, transportation and retail, generating unique benefits for individuals as well as for companies, governments and society at large.

Yet with critics warning about the growth of tech companies to unprecedented size, policymakers have begun to consider the effect of new platforms and business models on competition, the economy, politics and speech.

This debate enriches the already robust discussion about the implications of data-rich technologies for privacy and security. In this session, policymakers, industry leaders and academics discuss the effects of the digital economy on privacy, security, and competition.

They assess ways to regulate tech innovators to protect the rights of individuals and new upstarts without sacrificing progress and economic growth.

GDPR’s Influence Ripples Around The World – 32nd Annual International Conference @ St John's College Cambridge United Kingdom
Jul 1 @ 9:00 am – Jul 3 @ 4:30 pm
GDPR's Influence Ripples Around The World - 32nd Annual International Conference @ St John's College Cambridge United Kingdom

This mid-sized conference has several themes, as we address the far reaching GDPR requirements including the added value of fair and lawful processing. We cover the GDPR’s impact both in the EU and the wider world but also its impact on company operations. There will be a session on the European novel right of collective action which has already stimulated France’s CNIL into action to impose a 50 million Euros fine on Google. Other companies are also in the frame. Compensation for damages from the exercise of privacy rights is now firmly on the agenda.

Last May’s drama of the GDPR fully applying and the adoption of the EU Member States’ data protection laws may have diminished on the surface. But data controllers and data processors will always need to pay attention, as laws have been strengthened, organisations have stricter duties and individuals have stronger rights.
