9:30 a.m. – Main discussion
“Data protection in the EU and Germany – Impediment or basis of our digital future?”

Slogans such as “smart data” or “Industry 4.0” are symbolic of the digital data economy we live in. At the same time, the issue of organising data protection and the right to informational self-determination needs to be clarified. The European Commission has responded to this and is currently bringing in a new European General Data Protection Regulation. However, will the resulting legislation and structures in Europe lead to a foundation of meaningful protection, which will also serve as a foundation for the future of Europe? Or will it become an impediment to business and data-driven innovation? What might these changes mean to your business and to our economy and power of innovation?
