Chris and Hilary were joined by Moderator Dennis Hirsch, Ohio State University Moritz College of Law (US) and speakers Gemma Clavell, Eticas (ES), Gry Hasselbalch, DataEthics (DK), and Evert-Ben van Veen, Medlawconsult (NL) for a presentation, “The Role of Ethical Analysis in Privacy and Data Protection Assessments” that focused upon the role of ethical considerations in conducting privacy and data protection assessments.

The panel used cross-disciplinary and historical lenses to explore the way in which ethical principles, such as those set forth by Beauchamp and Childress, have been evaluated in other forms of ethical review and ethical impact assessment, and how they relate to and may be applied to privacy and data protection assessments. Then, the panelists discussed how these ethical considerations factor into practical tools such as Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs), Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs), and Legitimate Interest Assessments (LIAs).

The lively discussion helped the audience see how lessons from other applications of ethical assessments and reviews can be used to design and implement DPIAs and PIAs.
