The 7th Cyberwatching webinar is now OPEN!
Learn from the GDPR cluster projects on how to achieve "GDPR COMPLIANCE IN THE AGE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES"

Security icon Security
18 July 2019 - 18 July 2019
Pisa, Italy
Purpose and Scope:
Emerging technologies can boost performance and productivity for organisations across Europe. The development and application of technologies such as AI, blockchain and cloud computing are key competitive factors for businesses boosting performance, productivity and the European Digital Single Market.

At the same time, Europeans have set high standards for digital privacy. The GDPR now enforces stricter regulations on data handling and processing. But this may make it more difficult for organisations to reap the benefits that these technologies deliver through massive data and high-quality algorithms and at the same time be GDPR compliant.

From privacy by design and compliance tool kits, European research is leading the way in ensuring organisations from both the public and private sector can respect the GDPR and still benefit from the opportunities that emerging technologies offer.

Europe recognizes these challenges and in this webinar you can hear how 6 EC-funded projects (BPR4GDPR, DEFEND, PAPAYA, PDP4E, POSEIDON, SMOOTH) are upgrading Europe’s technological ability to address these issues and ensure that Europe continues to innovate in this space.
