“Combining privacy in the workplace with information security measures”, MUSES panel at the CPDP conference

KU Leuven’s Yung Shin Van der Sype organised and chaired the panel “Combining privacy in the workplace with information security measures” (video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sikwHfoiylg) within the 8th edition of the international conference on Computers, Privacy & Data Protection (CPDP) held in Brussels last week.

The panellists Frank HENDRICKX (KU Leuven), Nigel MOSS (Coca-Cola Enterprises), Stephanie RAETS (Claeys & Engels), and Walid MAALEJ (MUSES partner HITEC- University of Hamburg) discussed a broader range of privacy issues arising in the workplace, but focused in particular on:

  • The balance between privacy and data protection and the rights and freedoms of others,
  • The importance of a sanctioning risk for employers to move beyond mere compliance,
  • The complications associated with data transfers to third countries,
  • The impact of the proposed General Data Protection Regulation on the privacy protection of employees.
