Digital change affects every area of life. It opens many opportunities for good – and evil. Hardly a day passes without chilling stories of malicious and illegal activity; reports of personal security being breached; government systems being hacked with potentially dire consequences for whole populations; intellectual property rights being infringed; fraud. These pose big questions for the law.
On Friday 27th November (5.30pm-6.30pm), Politeia’s Justice series with BPP will focus on some of the questions for the law. A distinguished panel of lawyers will consider the problems, the remedies and the legal framework, touching on such themes as:
- How well does the law protect us from digital transgressions? What remedies does it offer?
- Does the legal framework accommodate digital change?
- How should intellectual property be protected? How should fraud or breaches of national and personal security be overcome?
- What are the right and wrong areas for digital privacy concerns?
- What arrangements should govern data retention by security agencies, and data collection by health authorities?
- What principles should guide the framing of laws?
- What changes are needed for remedying transgressions?
