2018 Forum programme

Forum Session
Who’s keeping our data safe?
Thursday, September 13, 2018, 9:15 AM - 9:30 AM, Room 11E

From misuse of social media or smart home devices to lack of transparency in privacy agreements and fears of industrial or governmental surveillance, safeguarding our personal data has become a major concern. But whose responsibility is data protection –the end user, the private sector, government or a mixture of all three? What collaborations, policy frameworks or good practices can we adopt or adapt? Can we find a better balance between convenience and privacy, or between the benefits and risks of free-flowing data? How can we best secure data at a personal, industrial or national level in an increasingly digital world?
