Concurrent Session 4C
I've Got Nothing To Hide..
Is the tide turning for privacy? Has legislation caught up with Technology?
The murmurings began a while back with data breach headlines becoming increasingly frequent, a multitude of posts about how accessible our personal information has become, news of Russian Intervention in the US Elections, and Cambridge Analytica scandal. Then came Mark Zuckerberg’s congress testimony and his subsequent apologies and assurance to put things right. All this at a time when the European GDPR came into effect and Privacy Acts across the world were being reviewed.
People are becoming increasingly aware of privacy implications, especially with revelations that Facebook often knows more about you than your partner. The truth is that privacy is the tip of the iceberg. AUT has identified over 30 pieces of legislation that impact the way we capture, store and dispose of information. This analysis has turned our approach to information and data management on its head.
In this session Stephen will consider AUT’s digital landscape and how the regulatory and moral obligations AUT have identified have changed the University's approach to information and data management.
Stephen has over 20 years’ experience in the Application Development and Consulting spaces. For the past 5 years he has been an Architect on AUT’s Information and Collaboration Programme of work. He is now working on AUT’s Technology, Application and Data Architecture as well as completing a Master of Visual Arts where he creates data art from the audit logs of information management systems.
