Can you believe 2020 is almost over? And what a year is has been. Come and hear Allan Frank’s rendition of this year’s most significant events from the world of data protection and other corners of life.


af IDA

This year turned many of our lives upside down and stretched our understanding of what is possible and not possible to the extremes.

We have worked from home like never before. We have manage home schooling, video-meetings, drinks over messaging Apps, going on online dates, having our physical movements and contacts restricted just to mention a few. It has all affected our professional and personal lives and made us more aware of the important role the digital devices and digital connectivity plays.

Allan Frank will give his interpretation of 2020’s most significant events in the world of data protection and information security seen through the lens of the new normal of Covid-19 pandemic, rise in the cybercrime, governmental restrictions, advances in AI, major EU-rulings and cases against Big-tech and many more.

With sharp humour and deep professional insight, Allan will take us on a rollercoaster journey of the year 2020, help us make sense of the world, wave good-bye to this significant year and give us a glimpse of what we can look forward to in the next.
