Fieldfisher will hold its Annual Data Protection Conference in Brussels on 18 June 2019. One year after the GDPR came into effect, this conference offers to step back and take stock. We will discuss recent legal developments in Belgium and key decisions from DPAs and courts from the past months in Europe, but also privacy and consumer protection, online privacy, and the protection of privacy in the blockchain era.
