CPDP2012 Panels at Grande Halle
9.00 A ‘Trusted’ Panel: A Need for Constructive Distrust?
hosted by Mireille HILDEBRANDT (Erasmus University Rotterdam, NL and Vrije Universiteit Brussel, BE) and Claudia DIAZ (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, BE)
panel George DANEZIS, Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK), Kieron O’HARA, University of Southampton (UK), Michel ARNAUD, Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense (FR), Jens FROMM, Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (DE), Alma WHITTEN, Google (US)
Trust seems the new buzz word of regulators and the industry. To increase the scope (and profits) of eCommerce consumers must be persuaded to trust the infrastructures that enable online transactions. However, the growing awareness of an undercurrent that treats ‘data as currency’ may soon reach the public at large.
As a consequence, trust may implode. Generally speaking, trust is often related to security, with some lip service to privacy (as an afterthought). This panel aims to flesh out what it means to engineer and sustain a trustworthy ICT infrastructure: what kind of security is required, what privacy is at stake and to what extent can both be built into the technological environment? How does such an engineered ‘trust’ relate to law, ethics and the democracy? When do we want trust and when do we need security? Is the one a precondition for the other - or viceversa?

10.30 PERSONAL DATA BREACH NOTIFICATIONS: OPPORTUNITIES, CHALLENGES AND HOW DO WE GET THERE?
organised by CPDP and the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA)
hosted by Barbara DASKALA, ENISA and Slawomir GORNIAK, ENISA
panel Rosa BARCELO, European Commission (EU), Chiara GIOVANNINI, ANEC - the European consumer voice in standardization (BE), Achim KLABUNDE, European Commission (EU), Gwendal LEGRAND, Article 29 Working Party, Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (FR), Tara WHALEN, Office of the Canadian Privacy Commissioner (CA)
The introduction of a European data breach notification requirement for the electronic communication sector introduced in the review of the ePrivacy Directive (Article 4) has been a very important development towards increasing the level of data security in Europe. The process is being driven by the European Commission, and ENISA is one of the stakeholders consulted on this, providing appropriate suggestions and recommendations. Notably, one of the focus of ENISA’s work on this is to involve and promote consensus among the different stakeholders participating in this process, namely the Article 29 and the Data Protection Authorities (DPAs), EDPS and the industry; and in this panel the various stakeholders expressing their views on the opportunities and challenges of Art4 implementation and to discuss how we could make it work.
11.45 Drones, surveillance and targeted killings: Issues of technologies, human rights and territoriality
organised by CPDP
hosted by Annegret BENDIEK (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik – Deutsches Institut für Internationale Politik und Sicherheit, DE) and Ben HAYES (Statewatch, UK)
Panel Noel SHARKEY, University of Sheffield (UK), Vittorio PRODI, Member of the European Parliament (EU), Ben WIZNER, American Civil Liberties Union (US)
Drones, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), are increasingly used for a wide set of purposes, and in particular for security and surveillance. This panel discusses the main tensions raised by their deployment, with a special focus on the nexus between technology, territoriality, law and human rights.
14.00 Surveillance at the borders: Travelers, migrants or mala fide individuals?
organised by CPDP and the Academy of European Law (ERA, DE)
hosted by Cornelia RIEHLE, ERA (DE) and Franziska BOEHM, University of Luxembourg (LU)
panel Jelle BAKKER, Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (NL), Julien JEANDESBOZ, King’s College London (UK), Cristina JORGE, FRONTEX (EU), Ska KELLER, Member of the European Parliament (EU)
The EU’s border policy has a strong focus on the surveillance of external borders. Various measures have been enacted so far to protect EU borders from illegal immigration and (potential) criminals. Programmes such as Eurosur or the planned PNR analyses and the access of Europol to Eurodac and the VIS as well as the extended mandate of Frontex are intended to contribute to a safer Europe. The Commission recently published its “smart border package” illustrating a way to protect the borders by electronic means. All these developments have astrong impact on fundamental rights and raise political and legal questions. Among them: Are people travelling to Europe, applying for asylum or a visa treated with the general suspicion of being a criminal? Does surveillance at the borders really help to detect criminals? How should the EU organize its policy to best protect its borders?
15.15 Coffee break
15.30 Freedom of association in the networked workplace
hosted by Seda GUERSES (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, BE) and Leigh FRENCH (The Strickland Distribution, UK)
panel Kirstie BALL, Open University (UK), Christian FUCHS, Uppsala University (SE), David HOLLIS, Unite the Union (UK), Tonia NOVITZ, University of Bristol (UK)
Ongoing developments in IT and social media are changing the boundaries and structure of the workplace, causing a blurring of distinctions between private and work-related activities. This is raising new issues in regard to the extent of surveillance applied by businesses towards their employees. Attempts to control workplace communications are however conflicting with a number of basic employment rights. This panel seeks to address these issues with a specifi c focus on the potential impacts of emerging surveillance cultures on the rights of freedom of association in the networked workplace.

Continuation of morning session
13.30 Computers reading our minds? The benefits and risks of profiling
organised by CPDP and the Privacy Platform
hosted by Sophie IN 'T VELD, Member of the European Parliament (EU)
panel John BOSWELL, SAS (US), Sarah LUDFORD, Member of the European Parliament (EU), Ian NEILL, e-Borders Home Office (UK), Jörg POLAKIEWICZ, Council of Europe (EUR), Peter WENT, WCC - Smart Search and Match (NL)
The purpose of the meeting is to get better insight of the use of profiling and other methods of automated search and compiling of personal data. Browsing huge quantities of data and combining them into complete and detailed profiles is an unprecedented tool for targeting individuals. Profiling methods go beyond the mere creation of a static image: they allow for analyzing and even predicting behavior of individuals. The possibilities are almost limitless, and its attraction for commercial purposes is fairly obvious. But public authorities too are increasingly using profiling methods for law enforcement and security purposes, but other public sectors like public health or public transports use profiling for their specific purposes.
But besides its clear benefits, profiling raises a lot of practical, legal and ethical questions. What is the real predictive potential of profiling? What is and is not possible with profiling? How is profiling being used today, and are we sufficiently aware it is happening? Can anonymised data be compiled into an identifiable individual profile? Is profiling adequately covered by EU data protection legislation? What does profiling mean for "informational self-determination"? Does profiling for law enforcement purposes mean the end of the presumption of innocence? Is it possible to find a legal definition of profiling? What challenges does cloud computing pose?

The new-generation electrical grids (smart grids) recently got very high on the agenda of privacy advocates. Despite some noble economic, environmental and security benefits, among others, the issue of privacy and data protection therein still raises a lot of controversies. Why privacy matters for smart grids? Can privacy and smart grids walk together? These issues will be addressed from the perspectives of industry, academia, civil society organisations, policy makers and regulators.
