The Trust aWare Consortium at the Venice Privacy Symposium
Venice is currently hosting the Privacy Symposium (April 17-21, 2023), a conference that aims to support international dialogue, cooperation and the exchange of knowledge on data protection, compliance, and innovative technologies. It offers a unique opportunity to:
- Discover upcoming regulatory developments at the European and international level
- Learn about good practices and lessons learned from data protection authorities
- Access the latest findings of research data protection innovation
- Meet experts and authorities
- Participate in international cooperation for privacy and data protection.
As in the previous edition, the 2023 Conference will also be hosted by Ca' Foscari University, in the heart of the historic centre of Venice, with the participation of high-level international, regional and national data protection authorities.
The Conference will feature over 200 high-level speakers and data protection authorities from around the world. The programme includes a full day of sessions in Italian, coordinated by the Italian Institute for Data Privacy and Enhancement (IIP), and a large choice of international sessions (with Italian interpreters) throughout the week.
Javier Gutiérrez Meana attended the conference as Trust aWare's representative at the round table on "New Cybersecurity Standards and Certifications," which took place on Monday, April 17, moderated by Afonso Ferreira (CNRS-IRIT). He shared both experience and insight on how to approach standardization and certification within a European project, leveraging the strong involvement of technologists and scientists, as well as social sciences and humanities experts. With the support of the IoT Lab, the consortium has thoroughly analysed the standardization landscape, in relation to the technologies used in the project, defined a roadmap to help developers comply, and is currently preparing contributions to several ongoing standardization activities. With regard to certification, existing mechanisms for personal data protection and IT security were compared.
