Extensive research has been conducted at the University of Luxembourg, and more specifically at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), in the Data Protection domain, in particular with respect to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is expected to have a significant impact on the European Digital Single Market because it changes how enterprises have to protect individual’s personal data records.

Many companies will have to adjust their business practices fit to comply with the GDPR. Numerous learning opportunities have been popping up here and there, from webinars to meetups, trainings, and conferences. The Commission Nationale pour la Protection des Donnees (CNDP) began raising awareness on the topic early on and hosted several public events throughout the past couple of months. The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) has also been very active in creating dialogues around the upcoming GDPR challenges.

Several panels and workshops with the main focus on the new regulation have been organized at the University of Luxembourg or nearby prior the entering into force of the GDPR, i.e., 25th of May 2018, co-organized with CNPD and with the law firm Stibbe.
