Maine Law sponsors data privacy conference in Brussels

Jan. 25, 2014

The University of Maine School of Law, a national leader in the area of data privacy law, co-sponsored the 7th annual conference, “Computers, Privacy & Data Protection,” held Jan. 22-24 in Brussels, Belgium.

The event is one of the largest data privacy conferences in the world, with more than 650 participants from dozens of countries, and more than 60 panels, workshops and side events. Participants included policy makers, academics, computer scientists, consultants, practitioners and activists. Discussions covered a wide range of topics including the data protection reform in the European Union, PRISM, big data, privacy by design, cloud computing, biometrics and e-health.

Maine Law hosts an annual Information Privacy Summer Institute, in collaboration with the International Association of Privacy Professionals, which is led by Maine Law alum Trevor Hughes (’95). Also this year, the Maine Law Review dedicated its annual symposium to the topic of data privacy. The Feb. 21 event is titled “Who’s Governing Privacy?” For details, click here.
