    UIA: international congress

    In attach full speech of Mr. Marazzi in occasion of UIA (Union International des Avocats), Budapest, regarding Biotechnology Law with title "Hacking Pacemakers and Beyond: Cybersecurity Issues in Healthcare"

    Mr. Marazzi was invited as an expert of Cyber Security and Health, with particular attention at Data Fiction and Privacy.

    The relation has had the objective to analyze: 

    • New technological developments in the field of healthcare pose a potential threat to privacy rights of consumers and patients and require healthcare providers to implement a number of measures for the adequate protection of sensitive information.
    • Provision of cross-border services, including healthcare-related services, already represents an integral part of global trade numbers and therefore mandates the importance of implementing further and more detailed measures for data protection at international level.
    • Vulnerability to Data theft and privacy violation are themes of concern for the consumers and supranational institution such as the European Union, which approved a directive on personal data protection, constituting the basis  for the recently approved the Eu Us Privacy Shield as well as a topic considered in international treaties.
    • The recently adopted text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) provides an opportunity for evaluating the status of current global regulation and possible future developments. Indeed, the inclusion of a dedicated chapter (Chapter XIV) purposefully aimed at regulating electronic commerce – including, for the present purpose, consumer protection and privacy - signals the importance of this topic in the context of supranational agreements.
    • Furthermore, given the absence of specific provisions in the context of multilateral trade agreements (most relevantly the WTO agreements) dealing with health-related privacy issues, and in consideration of the secretive nature of the currently ongoing negotiations of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the importance of identifying possible regulatory scenarios for data protection cannot be underestimated.
