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?
We hope you are able to join us online for this event at 5.30pm on Friday 27th November which will take place via Zoom. Please follow this link to register to attend and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any difficulties with registration.
