Timed to coincide with the conclusion of the negotiations of the EU GDPR the conference brought together EU regulatory experts with Silicon Valley business leaders and privacy professionals in San Francisco for a combination of keynotes, expert panels and practical workshops.

After six months and in the midst of several open consultations on Internet platforms, ICT standardization and broadband policies, and as Europe gets closer to finalizing the negotiations on the GDPR and on the Directive on Network and Information Security, it is important for US companies to understand the wider European digital agenda and the key interdependencies between these initiatives.

  • 3.30-4.00 - Closing Keynote – Regulation Meets Innovation: Navigating new Requirements in a Global Digital Economy

    The General Data Protection Regulation and Safe Harbor negotiations are not being conducted in a political vacuum. The Digital Single Market strategy was adopted by the European Commission in May 2015 and proposed a number of key actions to tear down the national silos that still exist in Europe and are hindering the full development of the huge potential of the digital economy. After six months and in the midst of several open consultations on Internet platforms, ICT standardization and broadband policies, and as Europe gets closer to finalizing the negotiations on the GDPR and on the Directive on Network and Information Security, it is important for US companies to understand the wider European digital agenda and the key interdependencies between these initiatives.
