Data protection: Lessons learnt from 2020 and the trends to look out for in 2021

Date: 19th January
Time: 10am GMT

2020 was a challenging year.

Companies and individuals had to face new work conditions with restricted travels and remote working employees and governments were challenged with ways to battle the pandemic with infection predictions, contact tracing, lockdowns and containments. Companies had to prove flexibility to adjust to rapidly changing requirements (and environment) and meet security and data protection challenges.

In addition, the year has been particularly eventful in the privacy world due to decisions and emerging trends which will show their effect or materialize even more in 2021. Some of these topics we will address and discuss in this webinar:

  • Pandemic prevention measures (e.g. government access to carrier data)
  • Data localization and data sovereignty strategies of governments
  • CJEU Schrems II ruling what it means and how it may affect companies
  • Social media´s approach towards content regulation
  • Stricter enforcement of the GDPR rules by regulators
  • New privacy related laws and regulations: Chinese Privacy Law, E-Privacy regulation
  • Impact of new technologies like AI, 5G, Ad-tech, etc.
