  • GDPR's Influence Ripples Around the World July 1-3, 2019 | Cambridge, UK

    The conference will address the far reaching GDPR requirements including the added value of fair and lawful processing. We cover the GDPR’s impact both in the EU and the wider world but also its impact on company operations. There will be a session on the European novel right of collective action which has already stimulated France’s CNIL into action to impose a 50 million Euros fine on Google. Other companies are also in the frame. Compensation for damages from the exercise of privacy rights is now firmly on the agenda.

    Last May’s drama of the GDPR fully applying and the adoption of the EU Member States’ data protection laws may have diminished on the surface. But data controllers and data processors will always need to pay attention, as laws have been strengthened, organisations have stricter duties and individuals have stronger rights.

    A unique summer-school atmosphere

    This residential conference is an opportunity to enjoy a unique friendly summer school atmosphere while mingling with a group of Data Protection Commissioners, privacy managers, specialist lawyers and academics from many countries.

    Held at the beautiful St John’s College, Cambridge, where participants will enjoy the excellent facilities at the conference centre. Come and experience a classic Cambridge college and walk across the Bridge of Sighs over the River Cam.

  • The Solomon Lecture: Accountability in the Age of the Artificial August 28, 2019 | Brisbane City, Australia

    This year's Solomon Lecture will be delivered by Fiona McLeod SC, eminent barrister and human rights advocate, on the topic: Accountability in the Age of the Artificial.

    Lecture abstract:
    Our aspiration for open and accountable government faces innumerable challenges, not least the natural reluctance of all governments to expose themselves to criticism and accept responsibility for failure.

    Time and again, corporate and political goals take priority over just outcomes, and the human rights of individuals and communities are undervalued and ignored.

    Numerous examples of bad behaviour shock us for a while, some even receiving the focused attention of high quality investigative journalism and Royal Commissions, but we are left unsatisfied, cynical and disengaged, more jaded than before, accepting the inevitability of existential threats, the comfort of algorithmic news feeds and vague promises to ‘drain the swamp’.

    In this context, are big data and artificial intelligence the enemies of the people, the ultimate tools of the oligarch, or the vital tools needed to eliminate bias, improve scrutiny and just outcomes for the visionary? Is there a future in which humanity evolves alongside an enhanced hive-mind in time to avert global catastrophe and create a new vision for humanity?

    Ms McLeod is the Chair of the Accountability Round Table, a former Co-Chair of the Open Government Forum and Chair of Transparency International.

    She will be joined on stage by:

    Madonna King (Master of Ceremonies and award-winning journalist)

    Rachael Rangihaeata (Qld Information Commissioner)

    Scott McDougall (Qld Human Rights Commissioner)

    Dr Brent Richards (Medical Director of Innovation, Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service)

    Simon McKee (Deputy Commissioner, Queensland Treasury)

    2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Right to Information Act 2009 and the Information Privacy Act 2009 in Queensland.

    The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) hopes you can join us for this special event.
