Jospeh Borg, Senior Advisor at WH Partners and also Secretary General of the Malta Information Technology Law Association (MITLA), announces that the MITLA will be holding a conference on Data Protection on Wednesday 1 April 2015 at Smart City, Malta.

The aim of the conference will be to provide an update on the latest legislative proposals as well as discuss the impact that the proposed new EU General Data Protection Regulation will have on current data protection practices.

The goal of the regulation is to bring current data protection legislation in line with recent technological and social developments. But will the strengthening of concepts such as the right to be forgotten, data portability, privacy by design and privacy by default inhibit technological innovation? Are our businesses ready for this new privacy landscape where the data subject will take centre stage? Will the new Regulation succeed in raising our appreciation for data privacy?
