Are concerns about your legal obligations to respect the privacy, identity and trust of individuals limiting the ways in which your business can use data to grow? 

This event will help you address these concerns by meeting with lawyers, technologists, entrepreneurs to share and combine ideas about how to work with data in new ways without compromising the rights of the individuals who own that data.

Identity and privacy are important issues affecting organisations working in social media. There are a lot of urban legends surrounding these. This is a meet up giving people working in social media the opportunity to hear from lawyers, academics, the Government and business people about the how identity and privacy are shaping the development of social media. The evening will allow you to share experiences and thoughts to develop best practise.

Panelists will include Professor Chris Hankin at Imperial College London, Margaret Dowie-Whybrow, School of Law at University of Greenwich, Rod Pugh,Managing Director at First Cyber Security Limited and Sade Laja, Head of Digital Engagement at Connected Digital Economy Catapult.
