Event description

Description

The AEGIS project is proud to host the "EU-US Roundtable on the Interplay of Technology & Policy in Data Privacy," a side event at the ICT 2018 conference.

As information and communications technology becomes more pervasive, information and data privacy becomes of increasing importance. Used properly, data and associated analysis have the potential to significantly advance society. However, if data is used without regard to privacy of individuals or protection of the data, then individuals may be hurt intentionally or unintentionally.

If data is not permitted to be used at all due to privacy and security concerns, then the data’s potential value to society is not realized. As the information that is collected about us grows in quantity, scientific and commercial value, and sensitivity, addressing these challenges is crucial to advancing innovation in areas including health, energy, and smart cities. while ensuring that privacy and associated basic rights—free speech and association, for example—are respected. Both technology and policy have key roles in protecting information and data privacy, but it is not always clear how they can best work together.

The AEGIS roundtable, with participants from both research and policy from the EU and the US, will highlight progress and challenges related to enabling the use of now-ubiquitous collections of personal information while protecting the privacy of those whose data are collected. The session will include presentations, a government panel, and discussion. US participation in the roundtable is sponsored by the National Science Foundation under grants 1636764 and 1832767.

Roundtable attendees are also invited and encouraged to participate in theHarmonising EU and International Cybersecurity and Privacy: Practical Steps” networking session, which will take place on Thursday, December 6, from 11:30-12:15 at the Austria Center Vienna. The networking session is co-organized by the Cyberwatching.eu, AEGIS and EUNITY Horizon 2020 projects.
