Breakfast „Overview of e-privacy regulation with Birgit Sippel MEP“
Birgit Sippel has just been appointed rapporteur on the e-Privacy regulation, taking over from Marju Lauristin. At this event she will provide an overview of where the legislation now stands with the first draft being released in June 2017.
She will also cover how she envisions the ePrivacy Regulation working in coordination with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is set to be implemented in May 2018.
In January of 2017 the European Commission proposed greater regulation on privacy and electronic communications, with the aim to increase protection of peoples private life and open up new opportunities for business. This has been seen as a key action towards the completion of the Digital Single Market Strategy.
