This workshop, organized by KU Leuven, sheds light on multiple dimensions of fraud: the academic research, the analytics, the regulatory framework as well as fraud investigations. Erik Valgaeren, with the assistance of Carolien Michielsen, speak about the limits of privacy with respect to fraud detection.

Privacy and data protection regulation imposes legal restrictions on the detection of fraud. These restrictions concern the nature of the data relevant for detection, the source and the manner in which the data is obtained and can be disclosed to third parties. Furthermore, the regulation presupposes guidance, notification, information of data subjects, and requires that specific safeguards are put in place when processing personal data. Finally, even more restrictions are imposed by other regulations on, for instance, cybercrime and labour law.

One year of Schrems II: a state of affairs for international data transfers

Articles - International data transfers have been the subject of intense debates ever since the Court of Justice issued its landmark judgement of Schrems I, on 6 October 2015.
