2009-05-19 EU, Brussels - Data Protection Conference 2009 Personal data - more use, more protection?

(Europa)
19-20 May 2009. European Commission, Charlemagne building, Brussels. The European Commission organises a personal data use and protection conference to look at new challenges for privacy. How should personal data be protected in a globalised world with increased mobility and in the wake of modern communication and information technologies and new policies? Which data is accessed and exchanged by public authorities and private companies? How well are current rules on international transfers of personal data working in a time of “cloud computing”? What are the expectations of individuals and business and society as a whole?
