In the wake of numerous well-publicized cases of data breaches and misuses, attitudes towards data privacy and protection are changing fast. Governments, domestically and abroad, have started responding to these challenges, fueling an intense debate around the need for a harmonized and federal approach to consumer privacy in the US.


The Data Privacy Conference USA 2019 will provide a top-level meeting space for the data protection community in the US and further afield to explore the current and future challenges in the area of data privacy, as well as to debate the different governance strategies that have emerged. Speakers will also discuss how a US data privacy framework could fit in the international context, what would a federal law mean for specific areas of the economy such as the health sector, and how a framework for the collection and use of personal data can be designed so that it does not hinder competition and innovation but promotes responsible uses of data and safeguards users’ trust.

Organisers of the ICDPPC 2018


Hosted for the first time in its 40 year history by an EU-institution, the European Data Protection Supervisor, the International Conference of Data Protection & Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC) was a unique and exceptional conversation focused on ethics, data and our shared digital future. With its theme 'Debating Ethics: Dignity and Respect in Data Driven Life', the conference broke records of all kinds. In October 2018, over 1,000 policymakers, tech pioneers, prominent academics, philosophers, industry leaders and many more gathered in Brussels from all continents.
