At this half day event, security experts from throughout the industry will address privacy issues that have occurred from current technological advances, and how to approach them. Speakers at this event are:

  • Andy Matthews, Senior Business Development Manager, Nokia 
  • Jessica Rivett, Senior Associate - Litigation Team, Olswang LLP Dr 
  • Simon Rice, Group Manager (Technology), Information Commissioner's Office 
  • Chris Rampton, Capability Adviser Surveillance, Home Office CAST

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.
