Recent high profile news stories show how our personal information is seen by more people than we'd realised. The public has a strongly negative reaction when their personal information is harvested for financial or political ends. However, the public also relies on services that monitor our day-to-day lives in order to secure our safety.
This half day event will look at the areas where new technology can cause us to re-assess the trade-off between right to privacy and right to safety. In particular we will consider the societal and technology challenges associated with data-abstraction, internet business models and public safety. All participants are reminded that this is a public forum therefore no confidential information will be shared at this event.
Speakers confirmed for this event:
- Catherine Taylor, Partner, Olswang LLP
- Dr Simon Rice, Group Manager (Technology), Information Commissioner's Office
- Chris Rampton, Capability Adviser Surveillance, Home Office CAST
- Colin Smithers, CEO, Redtail Telematics
The SIG is championed by: David Chater-Lea of Motorola Solutions and Nicholas Hill of Plextek Consulting, Guy Kenyon of Kenyon Consulting, Tim Phipps of Cambridge Consultants and Rob Quarton of Airwave. This event is kindly supported by the Anthony Waller of Olswang LLP / Legal SIG Champion.
