Trust, data and national sovereignty: solutions for a connected world

Summary video of the event

Technological innovation is a major driver of economic growth and opportunity. Recent events and revelations have undermined trust in digital life and created the sense that we have difficult trade-offs between economic benefits, privacy and security to make. 

With data flowing freely across borders, the traditional geographical order is also challenged. There are often divergent, and at times conflicting rules multiplying covering formal and informal transnational law enforcement access to data. This puts both economic and societal benefits of technology at risk and poses a number of challenges for all actors involved. 

This lunchtime meeting will explore new ways and solutions to ensure fundamental rights and the rule of law, regardless of data location, while ensuring that law enforcement can do the job that is expected by citizens and businesses. It also addresses the role of the European Union at times of finding solutions for re-building trust in an increasingly connected world.
