Where, when ?
The event is scheduled for Thursday 21 February 2019.
The event will be held at the VUB in Brussels (near metro station “Petillion” and tram stop “VUB”).
Topic: data subject rights
Data Subject Rights are a given in the data protection legislation (mainly Chapter III, but also part of Chapter VIII of the GDPR; rights under the Patients Rights legislation, etc.).
Data controllers have to organise themselves so they can appropriately respond to a data subject’s request, they have to inform the data subjects of their rights (art. 13-14 GDPR), go for processes and technology that respects and embeds those rights (art. 25 GDPR, maybe set up arrangements with data processors on how those should support the data controller in case of such requests (art. 28 §3 GDPR), etc.
Event type: workshop
At this event the speakers will start from empirical findings on some of the data subject rights. The basis are two studies: on the “right to access” and one on the right to explanation of fully automated decisions. From there the idea is to have an interdisciplinary workshop to discuss the feasibility of existing solutions, and – why not? – laying the groundwork for further innovative approaches.
Of course we would like to see input and participation from the legal hackers attending this event.
We are lucky to have the following speakers / lead participants:
