Data Regulation

Nowadays, connectivity is ubiquitous. Our smartphones, cars, infrastructures, even our refrigerators are all connected to a global web. This creates new challenges for legislators and regulators, who need to evolve constantly and adapt where appropriate. It also creates vulnerabilities, which could become attack vectors for criminals. Legislation thus needs to be adapted to the current technological landscape. In the spirit of Digital Luxembourg, the relevant players convene to identify needs and challenges of the digitalized society.

  • contribute to a better understanding of the symbiotic relationship between law and technology
  • stimulate the debate on trending policies
