Global Trends of Data and Data Protection Law

This event was the second in a presentation series on „Data Protection Rules (in) The World“ and was followed by a discussion on the matter.

Data has become a vital resource of today’s global economy – and, thereby, Data and Data Protection Law eminent fields of law framing (and guarding) different kinds of data processing. Especially, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation has set a global benchmark – and has been a source of legislative inspiration in many countries. The talk evaluates the advantages and disadvantages of this process – and discusses potential ways forward in the 21st century.

The first event of this series with Prof. Dr. Kai von Lewinski as the speaker on the topic of the GDPR and can be found here.
