Privacy Engineering Research and the GDPR: A Trans-Atlantic Initiative
November 10, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
A multidisciplinary research approach to understanding privacy is needed and deploying new privacy-aware approaches may require changes in existing technology systems, in business processes, in regulations, and in laws, as stated in the US National Privacy Research Strategy. When the EU’s GDPR becomes fully applicable on 25 May 2018, many data protection requirements will be seen in a new perspective. Among other aspects, “data protection by design and by default” will become an explicit legal obligation. Organizations who are processing personal data have to apply privacy engineering so that their systems implement data protection principles and integrate the necessary safeguards.
With this event, we aim to determine the relevant state of the art in privacy engineering; in particular, we will focus on those areas where the “art” needs to be developed further. The goal of this trans-Atlantic initiative is to identify open research and development tasks, which are needed to make the full achievement of the GDPR’s ambitions possible.
