Law in the Age of Hyperconnectivity

On Monday, 24 July, we have a full day on data protection, privacy, fake news, big data, antitrust and related themes, with Judge Christopher Vajda from the Court of Justice of the European Union, former German MP Vera Lengsfeld, Austrian privacy activist and lawyer Max Schrems, and speakers from Google, the BT Group, the Oxford Internet Institute, UNICEF and more.

Abstract of the agenda:

Law in the Age of Hyperconnectivity

Session 1: Chair - Brandon Smith, Investigative Journalist, The Capitol Forum, Washington DC

8:30 am Morning Keynote Speaker

Vera Lengsfeld, Author, Civil Rights Activist and Former Member of the German Federal Parliament, Berlin

REFLECTIONS ON STATE AND MASS SURVEILLANCE: THEN AND NOW

Vera Lengsfeld will share her experiences as a dissident under the East German communist regime, when she was under surveillance by the Stasi for a number of years, comparing this with surveillance in various forms that takes place today, with reflections on implications for democracy in our society.

9:00 am TOO MUCH DATA, TOO LITTLE REGULATION?

Dr Sandra Wachter, Data Ethics, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Algorithms, Privacy and Data Protection Expert, The Oxford Internet Institute, Oxford

The pervasiveness of giant online platforms such as Google, Facebook and others and our addiction to them means that vast amounts of personal data are being amassed like never before in history. We mostly use these platforms for free, but actually we pay in a different currency - with our personal data, and that data is then monetised. Sandra Wachter will explain the technologies used by these platforms, some of the implications of AI and algorithms which use "big data", with observations as to how they are presently being and might in the future be regulated in line with ethical, antitrust, privacy and data protection principles.

9:30 am YOU AND ME AGAINST FACEBOOK

Max Schrems, Lawyer and Privacy Activist, Vienna

What privacy and data protection laws exist to protect individual users of Facebook in Europe? Is the law being respected? What can users do to enforce their rights and hold Facebook to account? Does the United States afford an adequate level of protection to the data of European Facebook users transferred across the Atlantic? Are the so-called standard contractual clauses which Facebook users have no choice but to accept, which allow Facebook to transfer data outside of Europe, valid? Since 2011, Max Schrems has devoted himself to precisely these issues, chalking up a series of impressive victories against Facebook and changing the privacy landscape.

10:00 am PREPARING FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EU’s NEW DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

Lanah Kammourieh Donnelly, Public Policy Manager, Google, London
The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect in May 2018. It seeks to update and harmonise data protection across the EU and to strengthen data subject rights, for example by making it easier to transfer personal data between service providers. The GDPR is the first major revision of EU personal data protections in over two decades. As a result, for companies, and across all industries, understanding and preparing for these new rules requires significant work and advance planning. Lanah Kammourieh Donnelly will explain how Google is getting ready for the GDPR, focusing on transparency, privacy controls, and user trust.

Session 2: Chair – Erica Stein, Dechert LLP, Brussels

10:50 am CHILDREN’S RIGHTS IN A DIGITAL WORLD

Patrick Geary, Corporate Social Responsibility Specialist – Children’s Rights, UNICEF, Geneva

Today, children’s personal data is collected almost from birth, with wearable trackers being introduced in the bassinet and infant photographs adorning parents’ online profiles. Individual children are intimately known and understood by commercial forces long before they make their first purchase. Patrick Geary will talk about the nature of children’s right to privacy, threats to that right, and the role of the ICT sector in mitigating and ameliorating those threats, as well as legal and policy measures being advocated by UNICEF. He will also explain UNICEF’s most recent work on the tensions between children’s rights to protection from violence and their rights to freedom of expression, association, access to information and participation.

Legal Fallout from the Dieselgate Emissions Scandal

On Friday 28 July, there will be a half-day on the legal fallout from the VW “Dieselgate” emissions scandal, with New York Times author Jack Ewing who has just published a book on the subject, plus lawyers acting for VW investors, VW vehicle owners and Greenpeace.

AGENDA

9:00 am FASTER, HIGHER, FARTHER: WHEN CORPORATE COMPLIANCE MECHANISMS FAIL

Jack Ewing, European Economics Correspondent, The International New York Times, Frankfurt

How did one of the world’s most respected companies end up at the centre of a global scandal which rocked the car industry and damaged consumer confidence? New York Times journalist Jack Ewing will talk about how the emissions scandal unfolded and the corporate failings within Volkswagen which led to this unprecedented saga, documented in his new book "Faster, Higher, Farther: The Volkswagen Scandal". He will tease out the lessons that can be learned in corporate governance, risk management and compliance.

All participants in this session will receive a complimentary copy of "Faster, Higher, Farther: The Volkswagen Scandal", and Jack will be available to sign your copy during the morning.

9:50 am CONSUMER REDRESS: MY CAR’S WORTH LESS NOW

Evan O’Dwyer, Irish Solicitor and Litigation Specialist, O’Dwyer Solicitors, County Mayo

What avenues of redress do owners of VW Group brand diesel cars have in the wake of Dieselgate? Evan O’Dwyer will talk about his representation of a County Mayo nurse, Eithne Higgins, the owner of a Seat Leon, who came to him with exactly that question. Evan is now acting for several hundred aggrieved Irish motorists in a class action lawsuit.

10:40 am Coffee Break

11:10 am EMISSIONS STANDARDS AND ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION IN THE WAKE OF DIESELGATE

Dr Benjamin Stephan, Mobility & Climate Change Campaigner, Greenpeace, Hamburg

What are the existing laws and standards on diesel emissions in Europe and elsewhere? Are they sufficient, and are they adequately enforced in various countries? How did Volkswagen manage to circumvent them for so long? Dr Benjamin Stephan will talk about Greenpeace’s campaigning following the Dieselgate revelations and its efforts to try to achieve better air quality in German cities.

12:00 noon SHAREHOLDER RETRIBUTION: CLASS ACTIONS BY VW INVESTORS

Dr Nadine Herrmann, Partner, Quinn Emanuel, Hamburg

Volkswagen's largest investors are a significant constituency and a number of them are alleging that as shareholders in the global car giant, they suffered loss as a result of the Dieselgate emissions scandal. Dr Nadine Herrmann will explain the intricacies of the case seeking damages presently before Germany's Braunschweig District Court, in which shareholders are alleging in part that VW failed to publish market sensitive information in a timely manner, in breach of German securities law.

12:50 pm Lunch and Close

NOTE: Knowledge Nomads has extended an invitation to Volkswagen to send a speaker to participate in this session.
