Bio

Magdalena (Magda) Brewczynska is a PhD researcher at Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT). She holds an LL.M. (cum laude) in Law & Technology from Tilburg University (2018) and a Master’s degree in Law obtained at Jagiellonian University in Cracow (2015).

Her research interests encompass privacy, data protection and cybersecurity, as well European criminal law and Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing policies.

In the PhD project, she examines the legal uncertainties arising from the practices of sharing personal data between the private sector and public law enforcement authorities in a view of the existence of two distinct regimes for the protection of personal data, namely the general regime, governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the regime applicable to the processing of personal data by competent authorities for law enforcement purposes, regulated in Directive (EU) 2016/680 (the Police Directive).
