A&L Goodbody yesterday welcomed over 250 people to its inaugural “Future of Tech Regulation” event in Dublin, which brought together leading regulators and industry experts to discuss and explore the impact of new and incoming legislation at Irish and European level.
Key speakers at the event included Helen Dixon, Ireland’s data protection commissioner; Jeremy Godfrey, chairperson of the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC); Garret Blaney, chairperson of ComReg; and Brian McHugh, CCPC member; Baroness Kidron OBE, founder and chair of 5Rights; and Ioanna Noula, co-founder of the Internet Commission.
The event also heard from a host of other leading experts and professionals from industry and academia, including Ryan Meade, public policy and government relations manager at Google, and Susan Moss, head of government relations and public policy and TikTok.
Commenting on the event, John Cahir, partner within A&L Goodbody’s technology regulation and investigations group, said: “Today was a great opportunity to bring together decision makers across a range of backgrounds and sectors to discuss the future of technology regulation in Ireland, in the EU and beyond.
“Sharing insights, knowledge and best practice across industry and regulation sectors will allow us to better leverage opportunities and respond the challenges as Ireland continues to solidify its position as a European hub for tech regulation.”
