Privacy and Data Protection Workshop
13 February 2007, Brussels
Sevecom members participated in a workshop on privacy and data protection issues concerning in-vehicle telematics and co-operative systems. The workshop was attended by members of Article 29 (representatives of the national data protection agencies) and persons from DG Infso (eSafety and security unit), DG transport, and DG Justice/Freedom/Security.

European projects in this domain were presented (GST, Sevecom, Prime, Fidis, CVIS). The Sevecom presentation highlighted the need for a flexible architecture allowing for security PET enhancement and sketched a baseline approach based on pseudonyms. The panel discussed telematics, the obstacles, the dilemma between service and privacy (e.g. pay as you drive service). The conclusion was that a code of practice should be created, a task of the eSafety security WG leader.
