During the 2018 edition of SEC2SV European Innovation Day, we organized a Workshop on GDPR/Data Privacy.

48 participants from the US and Europe joined a three-hour hands-on session to share experience and develop a common understanding in two interrelated areas: where we are in global privacy regulation and what technology companies can do to respond to the growing awareness for data protection as well as to the diverging legislative approaches from regulators in Europe, the United States and other markets.

This Policy Brief presents the main insights, key findings and future areas for development that have been brought up in the discussion among participants, who included data protection professionals in technology companies based in the Bay Area, privacy lawyers and European policy-makers.

Looking forward to shortly reconvening together with EU representatives to discuss progress in the respective areas,

Julia Reinhardt
