The Rights of Individuals in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
School of Computing - Security Group Seminar
Speaker: Aysu Düz


In this talk, I present the rights of individuals in the General Data Protection Regulation. The technological developments have an enormous impact on regulations as well. The new data protection regulation involves a bundle of rights of individuals in order to empower individuals to control over their data. Especially individual's privacy concerns regarding their personal data have a huge effect on changes in the Regulation. Then I present the concept of personal data, referring the scope of it. Moreover, I discuss all data subject rights, including subject access, data portability and the right to be forgotten, with their characteristics, consequences and implementation.
