About this book

This volume brings together papers that offer methodologies, conceptual analyses, highlight issues, propose solutions, and discuss practices regarding privacy and data protection. It is one of the results of the eight annual International Conference on Computers, Privacy, and Data Protection, CPDP 2015, held in Brussels in January 2015.

The book explores core concepts, rights and values in (upcoming) data protection regulation and their (in)adequacy in view of developments such as Big and Open Data, including the right to be forgotten, metadata, and anonymity. It discusses privacy promoting methods and tools such as a formal systems modeling methodology, privacy by design in various forms (robotics, anonymous payment), the opportunities and burdens of privacy self management, the differentiating role privacy can play in innovation.
The book also discusses EU policies with respect to Big and Open Data and provides advice to policy makers regarding these topics.
Also attention is being paid to regulation and its effects, for instance in case of the so-called ‘EU-cookie law’ and groundbreaking cases, such as Europe v. Facebook.

This interdisciplinary book was written during what may turn out to be the final stages of the process of the fundamental revision of the current EU data protection law by the Data Protection Package proposed by the European Commission. It discusses open issues and daring and prospective approaches. It will serve as an insightful resource for readers with an interest in privacy and data protection.

Reviews

“The volume delivers a wide range of topics dealing with highly fluid situations. It offers insightful perspectives from legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. It can act as an incentive for those who are particularly intrigued with the recent advances in technology and the question on how to reconcile legal environment with technology.” (Elif Mendos Kuskonmaz, International Journal of Law and Information Technology, Vol. 25 (4), 2017)

“The book includes a discussion of various privacy practices. … There is a lot of information about big companies’ privacy policies, including Google and Facebook. The researchers’ insight is very valuable. This book will help technologists and policy makers follow the recent advances in this area and gain an understanding of data privacy issues.” (Gulustan Dogan, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, June, 2016)
