Conference at Col·legi de Periodistes de Catalunya (Rambla de Catalunya 10, Barcelona, June 18, 19:00) by Dr. R. Suppi i Ms. C. Serrano. 

The twenty-first century is a time full of changes and opportunities with respect to technology evolution, a situation which in turn leads us to a series of new challenges, problems and difficult situations. 
To address this, the debate will deal with privacy and Internet security, identity theft, also speak the Data Protection Act and the right to oblivion and new frontiers of data privacity.

Dr.  Suppi taught together with Professor Serrano a conference on security and privacy. May 15, 2015. Library of Rubí, 19:00 hrs. Barcelona.

This century is a time full of changes and opportunities with respect to technology evolution. This evolution involves a series of challenges, problems and difficult situations. To address this, the debate will deal with privacy and Internet security, identity theft, Data Protection Act and the right to oblivion and new frontiers derived of the use of Big Data.

Professor Suppi and professor Serrano presents the most important aspects to take into account and basic recommendation for the users about these subjects.
