About this event

The British Chamber of Commerce is pleased to invite you to an After-work Legal Event: "The Internet of Things" with guest speakers Dr. Catherine Di Lorenzo, Senior Associate & Katia Manhaeve, Partner, Allen & Overy. This will be held on Wednesday 01 April 2015 at Allen & Overy, 33 Avenue J.F Kennedy, Kirchberg at 18.00.

 

 

 

 

A fridge that sends your grocery list to the shop, a watch that collects data on your health and sends it to your doctor, or a Smart TV on which you can buy movies are just a few examples of objects that are connected to the world wide web. All these objects collect, store and send data via the internet. This can be data that you deliberately provided (e.g. your payment information to buy a movie), or which is collected “behind the scenes”, e.g. data on your consumer habits which can be very valuable to the recipient of the data. Obviously, the Internet of Things raises many legal questions, notably the question regarding the protection of personal data.

The seminar is intended to give an overview of the legal challenges that the Internet of Things creates, and will mainly focus on the data protection related aspects of this “new” trend.

This event is generously sponsored by Allen & Overy.

The evening will begin with registration at 18.00. The presentation will start at 18:15, followed by a Q & A session with the audience. To end the evening drinks and canapés will be served with the opportunity to network. The cost of the event is free for BCC Members and €30 for non-members. If you wish to attend this event please complete the reservation form.
