Government engagement with issues such as cyber security, data protection, privacy and artificial intelligence is imperative.
What impact does new technology bring to the government’s own collection, use and disclosure of information? What legal frameworks are required to allow protection to the community? The balancing of national security with the public’s best interest is also a consideration.
Increased digital connectivity and automation in our world is fast changing and has significant implications on how business and governments operate as well as on society.
The positive implications these new technologies bring are well documented. With this though, come risks and potential threats to security and privacy that need to be addressed by management practices and legislation for both the public and private sectors.
These issues and more will be discussed at the forthcoming Law and New Technologies Conference: Big Data & National Securities that will be held in Melbourne from Monday April 29 to Wednesday 1 May.
This is a valuable opportunity for the public sector to be engaged in these important discussions. Participants will have the chance to hear from and speak with global experts and discuss the appropriate policy and legal responses to the benefits and risks data applications hold.
