More than 20 speakers will discuss cybersecurity at the 2017 China-EU School of Law Conference “Personal Data Protection in Times of Big Data” which will be held in Beijing on the 3rd of November 2017. Gao Hongbing, Vice President of Chinese internet giant Alibaba, is one of them.
At the 2017 China-EU School of Law Academic Conference, legal scholars and entrepreneurs from China and Europe will examine the legal challenges massive data collection poses to the protection of personal data. In speeches and panels, they will ask questions such as: Who owns collected data? How safe are databases? How can personal data be protected? What data can be analysed? Which legal framework can regulate this? China’s 2017 Cybersecurity Law and the EU’s 2018 General Data Protection Regulation play a key role in this debate.
Zhang Fusen, Former Minister of Justice of the People’s Republic of China, Hinrich Julius, Professor of Law and Project Coordinator of the China-EU School of Law Consortium Office are slated to open the conference. Giusella Finocchiaro is one of the panel speakers.
The conferece will start at 9 a.m., it will end at 5 p.m.. Conference venue is the Jingyi Hotel, No. 9 Dazhongsi East Road, Hai Dian District, in Beijing.
