Talking About Privacy in Auckland is a coordinated project of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, Privacy Foundation NZ, iappANZ and Auckland Council.
This occasional series of free public talks will cover all sorts of topics touching on privacy in today’s digital age. We’ll explore the impacts of new technology, be updated on legal cases and reform of our 25 year old Privacy Act, uncover lessons from research, learn about privacy rights and how to exercise control over your personal information, listen to how businesses are protecting or risking personal information and anything else affecting individuals.
The four partner organisations are coordinating their efforts to make this diverse programme of presentations freely available to the Auckland public. Each talk will be presented on behalf of one of the partner organisations.
The first talk of this series will be Blockchain’s Promise for Privacy by Associate Professor Alex Sims, Department of Commercial Law, University of Auckland on Tuesday 27 February 2018 at 12:30 – 1:30pm at Ellen Melville Centre – Pioneer Women’s Hall, Freyberg Place.
