The expert will deliver his vision of how to face this challenge and his experience in how to understand and apply the principles of data protection in a computer project.

For Dr. Saarenpää the protection of personal data is a social and also a legal problem. "In a word, it's a problem with a capital "P". In the information society, the road to appropriate protection of personal data is full of obstacles. And we can fail to perceive this if we think that the issue is reduced to the legal regulation of the data in a technical sense. We simply can not function without giving up personal data in our modern information society", he warns.
