November 21, 2020: Webinar invitation on GDPR & APPI | M-Sec EU-Japan project | 25 November | 9am-10h30am CET, Zoom

The M-Sec Project would like to invite you to its Webinar dedicated to EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Japan’s Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) and the regulatory challenges in modern smart cities regarding the protection of personal information.

M-Sec is a Research and Innovation EU-Japan Collaborative Project jointly funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 and by the Commissioned Research of National Institute of Information and Communications Technology of Japan (NICT). The main goal of this project is to develop an innovative solution that ensures a more secure (and less vulnerable) data transfer between stakeholders (such as citizens, researchers, companies, local municipalities) when using IoT devices and applications in hyper-connected smart cities. Building on the security problems of other similar IoT infrastructures, the M-Sec solution is expected to leverage the use of blockchain, big data, cloud and IoT technologies and be ready for replication by smart cities all over the world by next year.

The Webinar “GDPR & APPI: regulatory challenges in modern smart cities” will be held on the 25th of November at 9am CET (Brussels Time), through the following Zoom link: Our experts will present the current status of EU’s GDPR and Japan’s APPI privacy laws and provide fact-based objective information on the regulatory challenges in modern smart city applications and how to overcome them, based on evidence gathered in the scope of the M-Sec project.
