NGI Talk #1: Data Privacy

November 27, 2018 @ 16:00 - 18:00


supported by


With the ongoing digitalization of every daylife, data has become the valuable resource of the future. Every user of the internet is generating and storing huge amounts of data on a daily basis. With the GDPR, the European Union aimed to give back users the control over their data.
In this first NGI Talk we want to discuss if this goal has been achieved, how users can take active control over their data, and what this means to the underlying business models. In three impulse talks, given by invited experts, different dimensions of data protection will be addressed. Afterwards, there will be ample opportunity for further discussion during an informal get-together with snacks and drinks provided by AIT and OVE.
