Data protection is important to us all, but in these days the health of every individual and solidarity for endangered people has priority.
This is why, due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, the organization team of the GDPR+2 conference, has decided to cancel the conference in its original form, which was supposed to take place in Fonds Belval, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg.
In concrete terms this means: We have taken the decision not to hold a traditional conference, but: we are working on a concept that will be adapted to the current situation and contribute to the success of data protection in Europe. For now we are working on an online platform that will bring together the data protection community and helps all of us to share best practices in this field.
We still want companies to take stock of what has been achieved as well as to recapitulate the data protection strategies which have proven to work or to identify the aspects of the GDPR that are in need of a reshape. The GDPR still is and will continue to be on the European agenda - and we will, with your help, give data protection a home.
Let us therefore thank all supporters, sponsors, interested parties, data protection experts, visitors of our conference. All tickets purchased and sponsorship payments made will be refunded or can be transferred on a voluntary basis to support an online virtual conference. In this way, the companies affected by the GDPR are directly involved in the further development of data protection standards.
