INVITATION to discussion series: “Cloud Act Vs e-Evidence: What will judicial and law enforcement cooperation look like in the digital age? What rules access to data?”

We are launching a discussion series on some of the prevalent issues around digital. From renowned peers to industry experts, we’ll be sitting down with the people that can shed some light on the big questions relating to AI, cybersecurity, ePrivacy and much more.

The first in this discussion series looks at:

The Cloud Act Vs e-Evidence: what will judicial and law enforcement cooperation look like in the digital age? What rules access to data?

The rules on access to electronic evidence will remain a centrepiece of the next European digital agenda. The e-Evidence package paves the way for a new body of rules on law enforcement access to data which will impact companies that process and host data, ranging from operators of electronic communications to businesses in retail, financial, health sectors, and many other areas. The adoption of the US Cloud Act is raising complex international legal issues that could entail conflict of laws for companies caught between EU and US data protection rules and criminal law enforcement.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Renate Nikolay, Head of Cabinet of Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová
  • Joni Korpinen, EU Affairs Specialist at the Ministry of Justice of Finland, upcoming holder of the Council’s Presidency
  • Maika Fohrenbach, Associate Policy Manager, American Chamber of Commerce to the EU
  • Kenneth Harris, Senior Counsel for International Criminal Matters, US Mission to the European Union (TBC)
