January 28th of every year is Data Privacy Day. Data Privacy Day commemorates the Jan. 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Leonardo Cervera Navas, Prof. David Hoffman and Prof. Jolynn Dellinger started Data Privacy Day eleven years ago with an event at Duke Law School to discuss transatlantic cooperation in privacy and data protection. Prof. Hoffman will moderate a panel discussion including Prof. Jolynn Dellinger, Mr. Lenoardo Cervera Navas (Director of the European Data Protection Supervisor), and Dan Caprio (Former Chief Privacy Officer at the U.S. Department of Commerce and Chief of Staff to U.S. Federal Trade Commissioner Orson Swindle), to discuss the current state of privacy, including the recently enacted E.U. General Data Protection Regulation and efforts to pass a comprehensive U.S. privacy law. This event will be live streamed at https://youtu.be/mo_EbaFwLoc. Sponsored by Prof. Hoffman, Intel Corporation, the Triangle Privacy Research Hub, the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security, and the Duke Center on Law & Technology.
