Data Protection Day: Panel Discussion

How do you strike a balance between public protection and personal privacy? To mark Data Protection Day 2019, Trinity College Dublin will host a free public event exploring some of the biggest issues in data protection. 

While new technologies have the potential to keep us safer, is it at the expense of our right to privacy? Join us for a lively discussion led by Elaine Burke (@CriticalRedPen), managing editor of Silicon Republic. Panellists include solicitor at PG McMahon, Rossa McMahon (@rossamcmahon), who has a particular interest in data protection and privacy; Lecturer in Law at Maynooth University, Dr Maria Helen Murphy (@maria_h_murphy), whose research is in the areas of privacy law, surveillance, data protection, information technology law, and human rights; and computer engineer, Professor Jane Grimson, who is Fellow Emerita and Pro-Chancellor at Trinity College Dublin.

Organised by Trinity College Dublin’s Information Compliance Office, Information Technology Services and Science Gallery Dublin to mark Data Protection Day 2018.
