Nordic Privacy Arena – Day One





Around 400 data protection experts gathered at Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm on Monday morning. The Swedish Data Protection Forum would like to thank all of you –  attendees, moderators and speakers, sponsors, and staff – for making this possible.

During the first day of the conference, we welcomed the following keynote speakers:

Sarah van Hecke, Legal Design Adviser, Houthoff
Anne Berner, Minister of Transport and Communications, Finland
Raegan MacDonald, Head of EU public policy, Mozilla
Nicolas de Bouville, Privacy Policy Expert, Facebook, and
Robert Bond, Partner, Bristows

Monday also saw panel discussions on harmonisation, ad tech, consumer attitudes towards data processing, data transfers, regulation of online platforms and the job market for privacy professionals.

Selected speeches will be published shortly. Tomorrow, we’ll explore some of these themes more in-depth. We’ll also discuss health data in the insurance industry, breach reporting and loyalty schemes, among other things.
