Dawex speaks at AFDIT conference

The AFDIT (French Association for IT and Telecommunications Rights) conference was held on November 9, 2018, at the National Council of Bars in Paris. The general theme for the day focused on “ new ways to hold online platforms more accountable.”

Dawex was present at the event to talk about data protection in the context of new legislation concerning online platforms.

The goal of the day-long conference organized by AFDIT and the University of Southampton was to review the "tightening" of national and European laws regarding online platforms.

Judges, practitioners, academics, computer scientists, and representatives of the European Commission and online platforms came together to discuss the merits of these new forms of "accountability".

Over the course of the day, Dawex co-founder Fabrice Tocco met with experts and specialists from around the world, such as Prof. Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon, Professor & Director of the Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS) and iCLIC University of Southampton; Juliette Sénéchal, lecturer (with authorization to direct research) University of Lille 2, and director of the Contracts, Consumption, and Electronic Commerce Department at TRANS EUROPE EXPERT; André Meillassoux, lawyer and AFDIT president; and Róbert Spano, President of the 2nd Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights, former Parliamentary Ombudsman of Iceland, and Dean of the University of Iceland Faculty of Law.

The Dawex CEO gave his presentation in the conference's 4th session, dedicated to "data protection and platform accountability". Leveraging his experience acquired via the Dawex global data exchange platform, Fabrice Tocco shared his expertise in the field.

While data exchange and monetization represent real added value for private companies and public organizations, these processes indeed require a high level of security.

New national and European regulations, such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), create trust and clarify the rules of the game for performing data exchange operations with complete security.
