Le DIP au quotidien / IPR in het dagelijkse leven

Les entreprises, qu’elles soient familiales ou non, comme les particuliers évoluent dans un environnement qui s’étend de plus en plus au-delà des frontières nationales. Les sociétés, les individus, leurs données circulent à travers le monde. Leurs opérations bancaires, leurs contrats, les procédures qu’ils engagent, entre autres, impliquent des tiers qui ne participent ni du même espace géographique ni du même contexte juridique. Entreprises et particuliers se voient dès lors dans l’obligation d’anticiper bon nombre de problématiques s’ils ne veulent pas être confrontés, en aval, à des problèmes majeurs parce qu’ils ont omis de prendre en compte les complexités de cette diversité géographique et juridique, en amont. Le droit communautaire offre des solutions, peaufinées au fil du temps, dont l’évolution implique, en particulier des praticiens du droit, une mise à niveau permanente. En outre, le monde ne se limite pas à l’Union européenne et les échanges avec des pays tiers requièrent eux aussi d’être attentifs aux problématiques qu’ils génèrent ou sont susceptibles de générer.

Cet ouvrage aborde bon nombre de ces questions, qu’elles relèvent du domaine strict de l’homo economicus ou de la sphère privée.

Enjeux européens et mondiaux de la protection des données personnelles

Nous assistons actuellement à une véritable révolution sociale, économique et technologique. L’exploitation des données avec le big data, l’internet des objets, va changer le monde. Face aux avancées, mais également aux inquiétudes que cette révolution suscite, il est important de s’appuyer sur les droits fondamentaux. Ainsi l’ouvrage revient sur la jurisprudence tant de la Cour de justice européenne que celle de la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme.

Une attention particulière est également donnée au champ d’application territorial de la proposition de règlement et au transfert des données. L’ouvrage met également en relief la perception américaine des règles de protection des données personnelles par rapport aux dernières négociations entre l’Europe et les Etats-Unis ; il traite en particulier du droit à l’oubli, du profilage ou de la notification des failles de sécurité ; il met en exergue les défis de la protection des données personnelles dans le domaine des services financiers, notamment en matière de fraude au paiement.
