Panel III: Protecting preventively and proactively: promoting participation, mitigating risks and adjusting design

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference


One of the criticisms against the previous Data Protection Directive 95/46, was its reactive approach to harm to individuals. The GDPR and the new generation data protection laws around the world it inspired aim to offer a different, proactive approach by introducing tools and processes that prevent (high) risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons from materializing: risk assessments and DPIAs, data protection by design and by default and the encouragement of individuals’ participation are only a few of these tools. This panel will explore whether and how proactive approaches in the GDPR and other modern data protection laws like Brazil’s LGPD can guarantee a more effective protection for vulnerable people, notably in the design of widely-used online services and tools.
