Against the backdrop of the release of the European Commission’s two-year review of the GDPR now
delayed until June, key policymakers and experts will join this virtual event to take stock of the benefits the regulation has unleashed, share their views on the gaps that remain to be addressed, and discuss how they have been impacted by the regulation in the past two years. The session will also ask how outstanding challenges and concerns around compliance and enforcement alignment across Member States can be best addressed and will debate issues around the capacity and resilience of the GDPR in facing continuous development of new data-driven innovations. Finally, and in the context of the current health crisis relating to the Covid-19 outbreak, speakers will examine areas of the regulation that may already need rethinking to enable Europe to fully foster the benefits that data-enabled innovation can bring to our society.

Key Themes:
Implementation, supervision and enforcement
Successes and shortcoming of the one-stop-shop mechanism
Effectiveness of enforcement by DPAs
GDPR & individual trust
Impacts on European businesses
Responsiveness to new privacy considerations in AI
The shaping of new technology around GDPR requirements
Areas that have been identified where further progress or rethinking is necessary
