EU e-Privacy regulation: An obstacle to digital transformation?

19 Jun 2018
12:15 PM - 2:45 PM CEST
L42 business center & workspaces
42 Rue de la Loi, 1040 Bruxelles

There has been much talk about the role of the proposed ePrivacy Regulation (ePR) in addressing cookies and web tracking, but much less attention has been devoted to the relevance of the new rules for machine-to-machine communications, where the impact on people’s privacy is much less clear. 

At this event, co-organised by TECH IN France, Bitkom and DIGITALEUROPE, we’ll discuss real-world examples of the challenges caused by the ePR proposal to European businesses in the growing M2M and IoT world.
