Aurélie Pols revealed as second keynote!

We are incredibly excited to announce our second keynote - Aurélie Pols! She designs data privacy best practices: documenting data flows, minimising risk-related data uses, solving for data quality. She spent 18 years optimising digital data-based decision-making processes. She co-founded and eventually sold her start-up to Digitas LBi (Publicis). She is used to following the money to optimise data trails, following data to minimise risks, which touches upon security practices and ethical data uses. She leads her own consultancy, is part of the EDPS’ EAG, and served as Data Governance & Privacy Advocate for Krux Digital (Salesforce). She has taught Privacy & Ethics at IE Business School in Madrid for 5 years, and supports DPO training courses at Maastricht University and co-chairs IEEE’s P7002 (Data Privacy Process).

In her keynote speech Aurélie will focus on data subject's rights and the technical consequences of these obligations. As the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced as of May 25th 2018 and replace the current Data Protection Directive, data subject’s rights are being re-introduced and reinforced, building the ground work for a more balanced approach towards data uses within our increasingly digitized societies. Aurélie will dive into the practical perspective of how to manage these new GDPR data subject rights, what it means for your processes and IT systems and when or to what type of data they apply.
