Italian DPA hosts meeting to discuss society under surveillance

On the occasion of European Data Protection Day, on 28 January, FRA will attend a meeting organised by the Italian Data Protection Authority (DPA) in Rome, dedicated to “La società sorvegliata. I nuovi confini della libertà” (The surveilled society. The new borders of freedom).

The event will gather together high-level representatives of institutions and civil society, who will debate surveillance and the balance between upholding privacy rights and ensuring security of citizens. FRA’s participation is intended to further the ongoing analyses related to the second phase of its surveillance project and the related fieldwork.
