INDECT participation to CPDP2013 conference in Brussels
Every year, CPDP puts under the spotlight an EU Member State. This year it was Poland’s turn as 2012 marked the 15th anniversary of constitutional and statutory protection of personal data therein. Panel, entitled: “From ‘Solidarity’ To The Surveillance Society. Privacy Protection Dilemmas In Poland”, was hosted by Wojciech R. Wiewiórowski, Inspector General for the Protection of Personal Data (GIODO) & Dariusz Kloza, Vrije Universiteit Brussel-LSTS (BE). Among panel members were Prof. Andrzej Dziech and Jan Derkacz, from AGH University of Science and Technology, representing INDECT Project. This panel offered a critical analysis on how public authorities use personal data and focused on surveillance, data retention and data subject’s rights. Special attention was given to issues such as balancing security and privacy in the research project INDECT.
