The report by the EDPS' Ethics Advisory Group will help advance the debate on digital ethics that the EDPS will continue, focusing on how we can make technology work in the interests of human dignity, culminating at the 40th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners which the EDPS will co-host in October 2018.
This report is issued at a time when the data protection community is preparing for the application of the long-awaited GDPR. It cannot and does not seek to override the GDPR, to regulate present data protection practices by proposing additional rules. This is adequately and appropriately accomplished by the new regulation. This report proposes concepts and arguments to support and advance data protection as a project of European values. It describes the way traditional concepts of value may be rethought, re-articulated and re-purposed in order to assure the continuity of legitimate practices and anticipate an unseen future. This task can, by way of conclusion, be condensed into five significant ‘directions’ of thought and innovation.
1. The dignity of the person remains inviolable in the digital age
2. Personhood and personal data are inseparable from one another
3. Digital technologies risk weakening the foundation of democratic governance
4. Digitised data processing risks fostering new forms of discrimination
5. Data commoditisation risks shifting value from persons to personal data
