Children’s Data - A Global Perspective
- 27 May 2021
- 3.00 – 4.00pm GMT
Today’s children are growing up in the digital age, they love screen time and in recent months, due to the pandemic, access to online services and devices has been necessary for not only leisure but also for education.
As children are spending ever more time online, protecting children’s data and privacy reflects what the ICO refers to as “the global direction of travel” in this area.
Building on our last event (you can view a summary of the discussion here) and for those of you working internationally, we are delighted to be joined by Gary Kibel of US firm Davis+Gilbert LLP and Victor Timon from Lewis Silkin Ireland who along with Ali Vaziri of Lewis Silkin UK will share their experiences with protecting children’s data in different jurisdictions. Gary Kibel will give us a US perspective and share what UK and EU clients can learn from the American experience with the FTC’s Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA) and Victor Timon will give us an Irish perspective on how the ICO’s Children’s Code differs from the IDPC’s Fundamental for a Child Oriented Approach to Data Processing.
