Event description

Description

Lord Llewellyn, British Ambassador to France, and Queen Mary University of London's Centre for Commercial Law Studies have the pleasure of inviting you for this event:


“Regulating Personal Data in an Innovation Economy: UK-French Perspectives”

The aim of this event is to establish dialogue as well as share experience and knowledge between British and French experts in the field of data regulation. At a time when the future of data regulation between the UK and the EU post-Brexit is the subject of much debate, this event will also provide a good platform to inform the audience of the UK and France's plans and cooperation around GDPR.

Panel 1: Responding to New Technologies

One of the objectives for the GDPR was to update the existing regime to reflect technological developments since 1995. The panel will consider if the GDPR has achieved this objective and is it sufficiently ‘technology neutral’ to protect our personal data in the face of recent developments, such as AI and Big Data analytics.

Panel 2: Facilitating Data Flows

Our information economy is effectively borderless, while data protection regimes remain stubbornly national (and regional) and different across the world in critical ways. This panel will examine the notion of ‘adequacy’ under the GDPR and the tools made available to ensure the free flow of data between trading partners.

With speakers from:

  • Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University of London
  • Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés
  • European Data Protection Supervisor
  • French Ministry of Economy (Directorate General of Enterprises)
  • Open Data Institute, UK
  • Uchange.co, France
  • UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport
  • UK Information Commissioner's Office

The event will take place under the Chatham House Rule.
