Privacy is not something that I'm merely entitled to, it's an absolute prerequisite.
- Marlon Brando

28 January is Data Protection Day, again!

07 January, 2022
Data Protection Day 2022


After the success of the last year's event, four EIROforum organisations - CERN, EMBL, ESA and ESO - join to bring you a shared webinar on data protection.

Under the heading of “BIG personal DATA protection”, engaging speakers from EMBL and ESA will provide us interesting insights on the subject.

Big data includes big opportunities and big privacy concerns.
Three experts look at the topic from different perspectives

  • The importance of Data Protection in the COVID-19 Research
  • New technologies - 5G networks, localisation data - and respect for privacy of their users
  • Strength through synergy: Integrated IT Security and Data Protection

Join them for a fascinating discovery.

Save the date:

  • Friday, 28.01.2022, 12:00 – 14:00 h
  • Online event
  • Free participation.

The link to Zoom will be published shortly before the event on Indico.

Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.
- Edward Snowden
