National Privacy Conference 2023
For the sixth consecutive time, ECP and Privacy First will organise the annual National Privacy Conference on Wednesday 25 January 2023. This is the annual Dutch privacy event around the European Privacy Day.
The conference will include the presentation of the Dutch Privacy Awards. The aim of the conference and the Awards is to jointly build a privacy-friendly information society with business, government and science. The overarching theme of the National Privacy Conference this time is Financial Privacy. The conference will take place in the Glazen Zaal in The Hague, but can also be followed online via a livestream.
Largely under the radar, a worrying trend towards overall financial surveillance has been under way for years, with governments and corporations able to track and monitor citizens and organisations in detail based on transaction data. In this context, the conference zooms in on the so-called "banking dragnet" and the Transaction Monitoring Netherlands initiative, the Central Bank Digital Currency, anti-money laundering, bitcoin and crypto, among others. In addition to various speakers on these topics, the conference will feature video pitches from the nominees for the Dutch Privacy Awards. At the end of the conference, the Privacy Awards will be presented to the winners by Privacy First.
