MyData Global, an international non-profit which advocates for a human-centric approach to personal data organizes the multi-stakeholder workshop on the topic: "GDPR more than one year after. How to make it happen?" with the focus on the practical implementation of GDPR’s article 20, "Right to data portability". 
Article 20, paragraph 1 reads: "The data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1); and

  • the processing is carried out by automated means."

In 2019, a year after GDPR came into force, article 20 is more a formal than actionable right. On one hand, there is a lack of tools, applications and processes to make it happen on the side of the organizations processing the personal data. On the other hand, people don’t know how to access their data and their often don’t trust their data is used ethically. This hinders the economic development based on data.

The workshop will bring the representatives of government, civic organization, technical communities and business with the aim to raise the awareness about the current status of the implementation of GDPR, and to generate the actionable solutions to make the article 20 reality in the upcoming years. The workshop will feed in into the discussion on Data Governance of IGF and contributes to the debate on the importance of human centric approach to personal data for just, equitable and inclusive model of sustainable development for everyone and reaching the SDGs (particularly SDG 8,9,10 and 16). 

The workshop is facilitated by: 

  • Karolina Mackiewicz & Sille Sepp from MyData Global and 
  • Olivier Dion & Matthias De Bievre from A New Governance MyData thematic group.
