Description

INVITATION TO A PANEL DISCUSSION

Ensuring Privacy and Security in Europe: what are the challenges in an internet age?

Tuesday 26 February, 12:45 till 14:15, Place du Congres 1, 1000 Bruxelles. A light lunch will be served from 12:15.

An opportunity to consider the regulatory framework for the lawful processing of data by security and intelligence agencies.

How can the need for prompt processing and sharing of information be reconciled with fundamental rights safeguards? Is access to personal data by security and intelligence agencies making us safer or just less private? How can we be sure that these data will not be used for other purposes, and how safe is their storage? What are the legal and ethical limits of the collection and sharing of data? Who controls the access to data retained by intelligence and security agencies?

Marco Stefan, CEPS (Chair)

Douglas Wilson, Director of legal Affairs, (UK) Government Communications Headquarters

Dr Mireille Hagens, Review Committee on the Intelligence and Security Services, the Netherlands
