Max Schrems, renowned privacy rights activist and honorary chairperson of NOYB, will be giving an exclusive keynote for PrivSec World Forum at Digital Trust Europe in Dublin on Tuesday, 28th June. This timely session comes as: 

  • Significant data breaches take place globally and in Ireland, such as the attack on the Irish health service in May 2021 

  • Regulators across Europe crack down on non-compliant data transfers and violations of the “Schrems II” ruling

  • The European Commission and the US negotiate a new data framework—which Schrems says he will challenge “within weeks” of its taking effect

  • Pressure builds on the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) to get tougher on GDPR enforcement

Few are better placed to comment on the future of online privacy, GDPR enforcement, and surveillance than Max Schrems, whose cases against Facebook have brought down two international data transfer frameworks and shaped digital policy across Europe.

Conflict with the EU fundamental right to privacy

Last week, Schrems spoke at PrivSec World Forum at Digital Trust Europe in London. Schrems discussed the “hate mail” he’d received following recent GDPR enforcement decisions and offered his perspective to those struggling with compliance. He also suggested that he would be challenging the new Trans Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF) “within weeks” of its taking effect.

Schrems gave a presentation looking at the origins of the EU-US “data transfer saga” and described the conflict between US surveillance law and the fundamental right to privacy in the EU.

Hear from Max in Dublin at Digital Trust Europe

On 28 June 2022, Schrems will appear at Digital Trust Europe in Dublin to deliver a presentation, interview, and audience Q&A. Schrems continues to fight for privacy, which he considers “the most unenforced right” in Europe.
