IAPP Brussels 2022
Though privacy laws and concerns have been around for decades now, they have an older sibling: Antitrust. The regulatory framework governing market concentrations has recently shifted its attention to an area that overlaps with privacy: data. In this session we will explore and explain how these two regulatory regimes are converging and at times clashing. What relevancy for the privacy domain follows from the recent German Facebook antitrust case? What does the draft EU Digital Markets Act mean for a company’s collection and handling of personal information? How do global tech giants navigate and use each set of laws to their advantage? What antitrust fundamentals should every privacy professional know, and which conversations will you want and need to have with your antitrust colleagues? This session will be critical for everyone working in a data-driven environment.
