Event description

Network and share ideas

MyData 2017 is an international get-together for personal data specialists. The conference is a gathering for building ties, sharing ideas, and spreading the word about human-centric personal data principles and solutions. MyData 2017 is created and curated by experts on privacy and data-driven applications.

Two-way learning street

The conference welcomes all interested parties to come together to gain a better understanding of how to make the data economy work for people through the expertise of the community. At the same time we believe that we, the existing community, need to learn from others to improve. MyData 2017 is a meeting place for both existing MyData advocates and those who want to learn about the principles of human-centric approach to personal data.

Future and change

Human-centric approach to personal data is an emerging trend arising from changing regulation and contemporary digital human rights issues. For this vision to be realised, we need to build awareness and develop new solutions to challenge the current data economy – new ways of thinking are required from society at large. The conference aims to demonstrate social and economic value of human-centric approaches to personal data handling.
