The aim of this conference is to explore the practical implementation of EU data protection rules within the law enforcement sector and highlight some of the challenges that data protection experts face in light of developments in policing, society as a whole, and a rapidly changing criminal environment.
The conference will bring together internationally renowned practitioners from law enforcement and security authorities with privacy experts, academics and representatives from private industry and civil society.
The event targets law enforcement officials, data protection officers, members of Europol's data protection experts network (EDEN), data protection professional in the private and public sector, lawyers and other advisers in the area of data protection and compliance, and academics.
The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) is the hub of drug-related information in the European Union. Its role is to gather, analyse and disseminate ‘factual, objective, reliable and comparable information’ on drugs and drug addiction and, in so doing, provide its audiences with a sound and evidence-based picture of the drug phenomenon at European level.
Among the Centre’s target groups are policy-makers, who use this information to help formulate coherent national and Community drug strategies. Also served are professionals and researchers working in the drugs field and, more broadly, the European media and general public.
