Ms. Eva de Leede (LLM), Advisor Privacy First Solutions
Eva de Leede works as an advisor for our new 'business division’: Privacy First Solutions. The responsible handling of personal data is a great challenge for companies and public authorities in the 21st century. Privacy First Solutions aims to offer a platform to organizations in order for them to learn from one another how to operate in a privacy-friendly way, to co-develop tools and to consider the responsible use of personal data as a unique selling point.
Eva has graduated as Master of Law & Politics of International Security at VU University Amsterdam. She also graduated as Bachelor of Arts in International Relations & International Organizations at the University of Groningen.
As a government trainee in the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Eva is currently working on the international dimensions of Dutch energy issues.
After obtaining her Master’s degree, Eva was a participant in the Nationale DenkTank (Dutch National Thinktank), which in 2014 examined Big Data as a social issue. This generated her interest in privacy matters.
Privacy and related ethical concerns are of increasing importance now that the Internet of Things and Big Data have entered our lives and legislation and everyday reality are ever more misaligned with the necessity of protecting the privacy of citizens.
