About the Event

GDPR 2 Years On | What has been achieved? What challenges remain?

Following the release of the European Commission’s two-year review of the GDPR, key policymakers and experts will join this virtual event to take stock of the benefits the regulation has unleashed, share their views on the gaps that remain to be addressed, and discuss how they have been impacted by the regulation in the past two years. The session will also ask how outstanding challenges and concerns around compliance and enforcement alignment across Member States can be best addressed and will debate issues around the capacity and resilience of the GDPR in facing continuous development of new data-driven innovations. Finally, and in the context of the current health crisis relating to the Covid-19 outbreak, speakers will examine areas of the regulation that may already need rethinking to enable Europe to fully foster the benefits that data-enabled innovation can bring to our society.

Key Themes:

  • Implementation, supervision and enforcement 
  • Successes and shortcoming of the one-stop-shop mechanism
  • Effectiveness of enforcement by DPAs 
  • GDPR & individual trust 
  • Impacts on European businesses
  • Responsiveness to new privacy considerations in AI
  • The shaping of new technology around GDPR requirements
  • Areas that have been identified where further progress or rethinking is necessary

Under the Spotlight...

About the series

Forum Europe are proud to present ‘Under the Spotlight…’ – a strategic series of virtual EU policy events focussing on a range of key policy files and topics across different subject areas.

Working alongside thought-leaders and policymakers, each event will put a specific area ‘under the spotlight’ – providing a platform for a detailed discussion on the policy issues involved. By bringing together key stakeholders in this way, the aim of the series is to support transparency and inclusion in the policymaking process in a format that is accessible to all.

If you have an issue that you would like to see explored as part of the Under the Spotlight series contact James Wilmott at | + 44 (0) 29 20 783020.
