The Digital Rights Forum is a public debate where a panel meet to discuss the important issues surrounding digital rights, with each event designed as general over-arching topic and a more narrowly focused subject.
Next Friday, the 18th of May, the forum will tackle the issue of Online Privacy.
With our lives evermoreso integrated with the web and social media, staying safe online is becoming something of an increasing concern to everyone. From mobile apps to websites and email, protecting our personal information and online privacy has never been more complicated and more important.
Faced with software vulnerabilities such as the leaking of contacts onto the Internet by mobile applications providers, the increasing prevalence and push to revealing more private and personal information on social networks and attempts by some to protect their businesses through litigation or processes which require the disclosure of personal information, the modern digital landscape has made protecting one's privacy more difficult than ever before.
With this in mind, the next Digital Rights Forum will assemble once more to discuss the current state of data protection and online privacy in the current context of social networks and mobile applications.
* Billy Hawkes, Data Protection Commissioner
* Paul C Dwyer, Security GRC & Cyber Threat Advisor
* Tom Murphy, Co-Founder & Director of Boards.ie
* John Kennedy, Editor at Silicon Republic
A full agenda will be available on The Science Gallery's website soon.
I hope to see you there,
