WEBINAR | Making data portability more effective for the digital economy

Date: 
15/06/2020 - 14:30
Venue: 
Webinar

After a long political tug of war, the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018, replacing the 1995 European Data Protection Directive.

The new GDPR strengthens the rights of users, or “data subjects”. In this respect, the “right to be dislisted” and the “right to data portability” are central elements of the new GDPR as, especially in combination, they enable users to exercise more control over their personal data.

They should also enable the switching to an alternative provider easier. However, the right to data portability triggers complex technical and economic issues.

This webinar will present and debate the results of a CERRE research project: ‘Making data portability more effective for the digital economy: economic implications and regulatory challenges of the portability of personal data in the digital economy’.

This report investigates the economic, legal and technical implications that arise when users exercise their right to data portability and seek to transfer personal data from one provider to another.

The authors will present their analysis of competition and regulatory challenges related to personal data portability and inherent complex economic implications, as well as recommendations to address these.
