Abstract
This seminar looks at the application of the General Data Protection Regulation to blockchain technology. Over the past year, there has been much discussion regarding the compatibility of blockchains with European data protection law. The seminar will highlight the most important points of tension and suggest potential solutions. More broadly, it will be seen that the mapping of the Regulation to blockchains unveils many current uncertainties and inconsistencies in the GDPR and its interpretation.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is ushering in a new era of data privacy in Europe. This event aims to provide a detailed overview on how the GDPR landscape in Luxembourg looks like, outlining lessons learned and what organizations that want to demonstrate robust data privacy to their stakeholders need to consider. The event brings together key representatives from different sectors and industries.

The session will begin with the national view point on GDPR presented by François Thill (Ministry of Economy), followed by a presentation from EY about lessons learned of the GDPR journey. This will be followed by Arnaud Constand (APDL: Association pour la Protection des Données au Luxembourg). After a break Gary Cywie (Counsel at Elvinger Hoss Prussen) will bring the regulatory perspective to the table regarding GDPR certification, having Commissioner Christophe Buschmann (CNPD: Commission Nationale pour la Protection des Données) doing the key note about the local CARPA certification. We will then have a round table and Q&A session with the panel of experts.

Attention: tentative d’escroquerie – enquêtes de la CNPD

Plusieurs acteurs ont informé la CNPD d’avoir été contactés par des sociétés privées offrant des services de conseil et d’audit en matière de protection des données, en indiquant que ces services se feraient prétendument sous le mandat ou pour le compte de la CNPD.
