Archival Workshop

GDPR & Historical Archives

23 Mar 2020 at 11:00am

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

This workshop was been postponed until later this year. An update will be available after 20 April 2020. 

eabh in cooperation with the European Central Bank

This workshop aims to look at the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on historical archives, in particular, but not exclusively, in the financial sector.

Since May 2018, the GDPR has set common standards of data protection within the European Union and, to a certain extent, beyond. This regulation received critical acclaim by the public and scholars alike, however not without facing wide criticism for the severity of the changes it requires to implement. Without doubt though, it has achieved to re-establish the topic of data protection on the political agenda as well in the public and business sphere. The ever-increasing collection of digital data has required common actions to limit the usage of personal data.

Amongst others, following questions will be addressed at the workshop: What is new for historical archives under the GDPR regime? Has the GDPR drastically changed the handling of personal information in archives? How shall we balance data protection with other significant areas relevant for archives, in particular public access to records (transparency) and freedom of science? Can we identify particular data protection requirements in the financial sector (public institutions as well as private banks)? How shall the GDPR be further developed in the future?
