Big Data Strikes Back: Building the data protection rebellion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

During this strategic roundtable we aim at having to build an alliance with data protection activists worldwide that would like to advocate for their countries to sign and ratify (and implement) Convention 108 of the Council of Europe on data protection and implement national data protection laws. Convention 108 is open to signing and ratification from any country in the world (not only CoE countries) and it sets the highest standards for data protection worldwide. However, not many countries have signed and ratified the Convention.
