Webinar: Legal Perspective on Synthetic Data

legal perspective on synthetic data

Synthetic data is still quite a new phenomena. It is being used in place of traditional anonymized data techniques, especially in AI training and development by organizations. The main goal is to maintain high data quality standards while minimizing the privacy impact of potential data subjects. How does synthetic data look from the legal perspective? To explain and answer all the questions and ambiguities, we are organizing an event on this topic.

During the webinar, Ilias Abassi from DLA Piper will share best practices and explain how to tackle legal challenges when making use of synthetic data tools. And the CEO and founder of Syntho, Wim Kees Janssen will show how organizations can benefit from using synthetically generated data.

CEO and AI generated synthetic data expert - Syntho

As founder and CEO of Syntho, Wim Kees aims to turn privacy by design into a competitive advantage with AI generated test data. Hereby, he aims to solve key challenges that are introduced by classic test Data Management tools, that are slow, require manual work and do not offer production-like data and consequently introduce "legacy-by-design". As a result, Wim Kees accelerates organizations in getting their test data right to develop state-of-the-art tech solutions.
