Workshop by Distinguished Lorentz Fellow Bert-Jaap Koops.

“Privacy by Design” (PbD) has become a widely supported concept, but there are very few real-life cases in which Privacy by Design has really worked, so far. Is it possible to embed legal privacy rules in technology design? And what does it mean to ‘embed’ ‘legal rules’ in ‘design’?

Legal rules and software rules are radically different: the law needs natural language and open norms to deal with unforeseen cases; design also needs to deal with unforeseen cases, but is shaped through hardware and software instead of through natural language; and software needs programming language with determinate rules. Moreover, privacy consists not only in data protection (regulating data flows) but also in physical forms of privacy (e.g., bodily and spatial privacy). Combining all these in one approach – Privacy by Design – is daunting, but necessary if we want to protect privacy in an age of ubiquitous technology.
