The conferences address a pressing challenge in the transatlantic relationship: the tension between cyber security and data protection.

We will bring together cyber security, data protection and governance experts, lawyers and representatives from security agencies, businesses and politics in order to analyse the problems in this field, to deepen the understanding of different concepts, to develop approaches and strategies for solutions, while ensuring a more productive integration of the relatively independent discourses in the USA and Europe on this issue.
