Abstract: ‘One of the most innovative yet mysterious provisions of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679) is a requirement to institute “data protection by design and by default”. More specifically, this requirement (set out in Article 25) imposes a duty to implement technical and organisational measures so that the processing of personal data will meet the Regulation’s requirements and otherwise ensure protection of data subjects’ rights. The duty extends to ensuring default application of particular data privacy principles, most notably those of minimisation and proportionality. The aim of the requirement is to ensure that due account be taken of privacy-related interests throughout the lifecycle of information systems development. While this requirement will soon take effect in Europe, it is rarely found explicitly laid out in the data privacy laws of non-European jurisdictions. The presentation will critically examine the origins and semantics of the requirement before going on to discuss its likely traction and whether or not non-European jurisdictions, such as Australia, ought to introduce (or make more salient) a similar norm.’

Professor Lee A. Bygrave
Lee A. Bygrave is Professor at the Department of Private Law, University of Oslo, where he is also Director of the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law. For the past three decades, Professor Bygrave has been engaged in researching and developing regulatory policy for information and communications technology (ICT). He has functioned as expert advisor on ICT regulation for numerous organisations, including the European Commission, Nordic Council of Ministers, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, and Norwegian Government. He currently heads a major five-year research project on legal aspects of cybersecurity – ‘Security in Internet Governance and Networks: Analysing the Law’ (SIGNAL). Professor Bygrave has published particularly extensively within the field of privacy/data protection law where his two principal books on the subject, Data Protection Law: Approaching Its Rationale, Logic and Limits (Kluwer Law International, 2002) and Data Privacy Law: An International Perspective (Oxford University Press, 2014), are widely acknowledged as standard international texts. His most recent book, Internet Governance by Contract (Oxford University Press, 2015), critically examines the contractual frameworks for the development and use of internet infrastructure. He is currently co-editing and co-authoring a comprehensive Commentary on the EU General Data Protection Regulation, to be published by Oxford University Press in early 2018.
