With the Big Brother watching over a cashless society, the last island of privacy would disappear as payment data would add to the ocean of data that exist on each of us in the digital economy.
The 2021 year’s conference will look at the impact of the possible reduction of cash use on privacy, freedoms and individual liberties and other consequences of a cashless society on consumers and citizens at large. A part of the ESTA conference will be devoted to loyalty schemes and consumer profiling in relation inter alia to payment data, and how prices can be individualized for each of us based on consumers’ individual data profile. We will be reminded how e-shopping and web surfing is impacting on data gathering. The conference will also update on the situation in Sweden and in the UK with regards to legislation and obstacles accessing cash.
Finally, the ESTA Attack and loss report 2020 will be revealed alongside specificities presented by national police.
