IT Security and Data Protection for remote working & learning
With major companies around the world now announcing permanent work from home options, and greater trends towards students learning from home, the global shift towards remote working and learning is projected to continue growing, well after the pandemic. Students and employees using their own devices and networks create a great deal of vulnerability, not only for the individuals but for the institutions and companies themselves. There have already been increases in security exploits by hackers on popular free apps and platforms. In this session, we will identify risks and best practice solutions for legal and IT security based on GDPR. It will give you an overview on how to protect your students, employees, and company networks when providing remote work/learning.

Do we really have a harmonized European data protection regime? Does the GDPR protect data subjects' interests sufficiently?
