While the United States and the European Union have different approaches to privacy and data protection, both are critical partners to protecting freedom online. Europe and the United States have faced an escalation of hate speech, terrorist content, fake news, and misinformation online. They both encounter challenges in accessing electronic evidence for investigative purposes and in protecting personal data against cyber attacks. Please join us on Wednesday, March 21 for a timely conversation with H.E. Věra Jourová, EU Commissioner for Justice, Consumers, and Gender Equality, on the EU approach to the challenges democracies face in the digital age. Our subsequent panel will review transatlantic efforts to countering hate speech, misinformation, and protecting personal data.
H.E. Věra Jourová, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers, and Gender Equality, European Union
