Archival Workshop

GDPR & Historical Archives


Frankfurt am Main, Germany

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.

What is new for historical archives under the GDPR regime?
