Recent legislation, especially the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), have attempted to significantly strengthen the standing of individuals in a digitised world. While some see such regulation as a heavy burden, others embrace the modern implementation of key principles and the increased control they give to individuals, and going further other see the regulation as a spur to a new larger economy where personal data is respected. Where regulation meets business imperatives, a tension is created. This track will explore those tensions from competing perspectives. It reviews the GDPR as a force to fundamentally reshape the empowerment equation between service providers and consumers, and identifies innovation in person-centric service technology and disruptive business models, making the GDPR a competitive asset for some and a competitive threat to others. We review state of the art legal & commercial questions relating to privacy as a business asset and identify constructive human-centric ways to interpret regulatory implementation.

The great MyData GDPR Debate

The GDPR empowers citizens with several fundamentally new rights. This session will summarise some of those new rights with an exciting keynote and three supporting presentations. In particular we will discuss the various implementation opportunities, technical and legal challenges and form a view on how these new rights should manifest for a mydata economy. We will then enter an audience participatory debate led by the speaker panel and your GDPR Mydata hosts, finalised with 4 key questions the debate has surfaced and poll the audience views on the most likely market solutions.
