A meeting of the SCL Privacy and Data Protection Group
Nick Tyler, Senior Associate, Reed Smith LLP and Committee Member, SCL Privacy and Data Protection Group
Steve Wood, Head of Policy Delivery, Information Commissioner's Office (ICO)
Michael Colao, Information Security Manager
Some Questions for data controllers, and those advising them:
Before we can answer those questions there are some more fundamental ones to address:
Some experts have expressed significant doubts as to whether 'PbD' is anything more than a nice idea with little to no practical or commercial benefit or application? From a technological perspective is it just 'pie in the sky'?!
This event will pitch together two expert speakers to debate both sides of the argument.
You will hear from the UK regulator's office about the ICO approach to Privacy by Design, some practical examples of it in the UK over the last few years, and the ICO's future plans for 'PbD'.
You will also hear the forthright views of a leading Information Security and Privacy Professional who will challenge the prevailing theme that favours the 'PbD' approach with some hard questions for the regulator to consider.
