The GDPR "General Data Protection Regulation" is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and European Economic Area. Svetlana Yakovleva, a researcher at the Institute for Information Law (IvIR) University of Amsterdam, will discuss its repercussions for data privacy in Europe and the United States.
Svetlana Yakovleva also works as a professional support lawyer in Privacy and Cybersecurity practice group at De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek in their Amsterdam office. Her primary research interests lie at the intersection of data privacy and cybersecurity law, human rights and international trade law. Her recent research proposes a way to balance the fundamental right to data privacy and the liberalization of international trade.
