The Executive Director of ENISA, Dr. Udo Helmbrecht gave a Key Note speech on the first day of the INFOSEK 2010 Conference, being invited as Special Guest. Dr Helmbrecht spoke about 'Security as a key element of Privacy and Data Protection' and the challenges for the policy makers in regards to privacy. This included an analysis of e.g. how to balance the benefits and fun of online social networking, while yet safeguarding privacy aspects. To address these matters, the Executive Director of ENISA emphasised both educating users, actions to be taken by policy makers, and technological aspects. Dr Helmbrecht furthermore outlined the Agency Work Programme for 2011 in respect to these matters. The Information Commissioner of the Republic of Slovenia, Mrs. Natasa Pirc Musar, also made a Key Note.
