About this event

The privacy debate continues.

In the wake of the most sweeping changes to privacy law during the last two decades, this lecture will focus on the current state of the union, as well as looking and future trends, regulation, enforcement and disputes.

We will open questions on GDPR, the future and why privacy will remain a strategic issue.
