AEGIS will host an EU-US roundtable on data collection and privacy at the ICT 2018 conference in Vienna, Austria on Dec. 5. The event will highlight progress and challenges related to enabling the use of personal information while protecting the privacy of those whose data are collected.
The “EU-US Roundtable on the Interplay of Technology & Policy in Data Privacy” will feature panelists from the research and policy communities in the EU and the US. The panel will explore the roles technology and policy have in protecting information and data privacy. Considering that the information collected on individuals has grown in quantity as well as in scientific and commercial value, addressing the challenges related to data privacy is crucial to advancing innovation.
The AEGIS roundtable is an ICT 2018 conference side event and is free to attend for ICT participants. The session will include presentations, a government panel and discussion.
In addition, roundtable attendees are also invited to participate in the “Harmonising EU and International Cybersecurity and Privacy: Practical Steps” networking session, which will take place on Dec. 6 at the ICT 2018 conference. The networking session is co-organized by the Cyberwatching.eu, AEGIS and EUNITY Horizon 2020 projects.
