FIRST PLENARY SESSION

SOCIETY UNDER SURVEILLANCE? STRIVING FOR A BALANCE BETWEEN SECURITY AND PRIVACY .

We live in a society of risk. Economic welfare and social development account for the fact that modern societies are less prepared to accept risk and uncertainty. New threats, such as terrorism, cyber-crime or environmental disasters, have come to join more traditional risks such as illnesses or delinquency.

Thus, security has become one of the great values of our time and information technologies play a major role in the rendering of security services. However, this technology is highly invasive and places the citizen┬’s right to a private life and the protection of personal data at risk, forcing us to assess and adopt decisions to balance the privacy/security conflict.

SECOND PLENARY SESSION

QUO VADIS INTERNET? ┬“QUOUSQUE TANDEM INTERNET PRIVACY NOSTRA ABUTERE?┬”

Internet feeds from a key element: personal information. We have gone from the solidary and libertarian net originally available to researchers and experts to the Internet used for commercial purposes and, nowadays, to web 2.0, the social networking Internet. Internet will keep on evolving and offering services increasingly more usable, interesting and sophisticated. In a very near future, functions such as localization without a GPS, the universal portability of a medical record or the configuration of schedule proposals depending on the users profile and behaviors will become popular. Users have not faced the need to pay for these services, and this has led to a privacy market where those who sell this privacy, internet users, are not in a negotiating position. Where is Internet headed? Is an Internet with little or no privacy the only one possible?

PARALLEL SESSIONS and SPANISH SESSION:

SESSION A

Ooopsss!!!!! Where did I leave my computer? Prevention and reaction in the light of security breaches.

Every day arises several news relating to the security in the custody of personal data. Thanks to the advances in Information and Communication technologies, it is becoming simpler to process tremendous amounts of data in tiny and easily portable devices. In light of this scenario, it is worth pondering about whether it is possible to prevent safety risks and what would be the best way to accomplish this. On the other hand, the confirmation that security breaches are a daily event makes us question the best way to react to them. Generally, national and international regulations are not comprehensive enough to confer the user the right to the knowledge regarding security incidents that affect his data. The most recent trends seem to defend the need for the citizen to be informed of those incidents that affect his personal data.

CHAIR:

    • Karen Curtis. Privacy Commissioner of Australia.

SESSION B

We cannot help you. Your data are in international waters. Determining the applicable law in a world of globalisation

Data circulates through many different countries. Hosting and housing services are hired at the pace set by market demand. Cloud computing techniques seem to even prevent us from knowing the actual place where our personal data is located. In the event of conflict, which country┬┤s legislation would be applicable?

PARALLEL SESSIONS and SPANISH SESSION:

SESSION A

Companies, privacy and international data flows.

In a globalized economy, the universal flow of personal data is essential. The speed at which services are hired is somewhat hindered by specific regulation in data protection, which requires us to think about what means would allow the easing of traffic while simultaneously guaranteeing the right to a private life.

Intellectual property and privacy: Profiles of a conflict.

THIRD PLENARY SESSION

PRIVACY AND CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

The new possibilities to treat information, the volume of information, and the very global functioning of the economy turn companies into a strategic element within the system necessary to guarantee the right to data protection. Designing management procedures on the basis of an intensive use of information technologies and on a treatment of personal data that respects the privacy of users or company employees can become a competitive advantage. Privacy Impact Assessment policies, application design, -privacy by design-, the establishment of self-regulating policies or the hiring of data protection Experts, whether they are external or part of the staff, are currently an inexcusable requirement.

In the information society, the protection of children┬’s rights in relation to the treatment of their personal data is of vital importance if we want to be prepared for future technological developments and their impact in the behavior of the kids themselves and of those with whom they relate.

PARALLEL SESSIONS and SPANISH SESSION:

SESSION A

"Smile! There┬’s a camera behind the ad!" Or ┬“Send it to a friend┬”: Privacy in light of new advertising techniques

Technological developments seem to imply that the possibilities for new advertising techniques are endless. However, if there is one thing that many of the new advertising models have in common this is that they are based in the personal information of their potential targets. Therefore, it is necessary to discuss how to establish sufficient privacy protection criteria to achieve a balance between the business interests and the citizens┬┤ right to the protection of their data.

SESSION B

Digital journalism and journalist citizens: Challenges for private life.

The birth of the blog era has revolutionized the right to information. In order to dish out news it is no longer necessary to have a certain economic level or professional ability, nor any kind of business structure. Today, a citizen can exercise his freedom of speech with the sole restriction of being read. On the other hand, the agility of the digital media from information companies generates a new type of journalism which reflects the traditional requirements of remaining truthful and keeping the public interest in mind but it is combined with the pressure of immediacy. Risks associated to rumors, lies and libels are multiplying.

Do you have private life at your workplace?

The workplace is becoming an environment increasingly subject to more controls.

FIFTH PLENARY SESSION

PRIVACY BY DESIGN

It is often the case that the protection of personal information is not taken into account at the time of designing the organization┬’s procedures or information and communication systems. The question, therefore, is how to make personal information protection become part of the corporate culture and be included within the catalogue of questions that designers and managers must resolve, such as encouraging the use of protocols and technologies that contribute towards guaranteeing privacy from their origin and design.

SIXTH PLENARY SESSION

MOVING TOWARDS A GLOBAL REGULATION OF PRIVACY: PROPOSALS AND STRATEGIES

The different regional areas in the world have achieved the privacy objective from many different cultures and diverse points of view, but all of them sharing the core idea: human beings, as social entities, need their own and reserved space, they need to have control over their private lives and personal data. This phenomenon has been called intimacy, privacy, vi├ę priv├ęe, riservatezza, informational privacy, autodeterminaci├│n informativa or the fundamental right to personal data protection. Globalization places us before an unavoidable challenge. The different cultures must find a common element for dialogue. In a borderless world without time barriers, the flow of information must be guaranteed and for this to be possible we need a minimum common denominator. It is necessary to find a balance that allows the control of our private life and, at the same time, the circulation of information.
