FPF Training Program:
Automated Decision-Making Under the GDPR

Nov. 9 | 17:00-18:30 CET, 11AM-12:30PM ET


FPF’s Training Program provides an in-depth understanding of today’s most pressing privacy and data protection topics. FPF staff experts design the sessions for professionals who develop policies for their organizations, work with clients on complex privacy issues, or those interested in emerging privacy topics.

On May 17, the Future of Privacy Forum launched a comprehensive Report analyzing case law under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applied to real-life cases involving Automated Decision Making (ADM). The Report is informed by extensive research covering more than 70 Court judgments, decisions from Data Protection Authorities (DPAs), specific Guidance and other policy documents issued by regulators.

Given that automated decision-making has been on the rise. Whenever it involves the processing of personal data the GDPR is triggered, this FPF training session will provide much-needed guidance on the intricacies of applying the GDPR in such cases.

This session will cover topics including:

  • How critical elements of Article 22 GDPR are being interpreted (“solely” automated, and “legal or similarly significant effects”);
  • How DPAs perceive controllers’ transparency obligations and how broad is the reading of the fairness principle to avoid situations of discrimination;
  • Whether the conditions for valid consent in cases of profiling and ADM are strict;
  • What DPAs expect from controllers in cases of automated decisions that do not trigger Article 22 GDPR

Please note the session start time is CET timezone: 17:00-18:30 CET; 11AM-12:30PM ET

After completing each training course, you will receive a digital badge from Credly that can be shared on your professional network as a mark of the skills you’ve acquired.
