Privacy in the Digital Age: Is it Time for a New Paradigm?

Wednesday, 13 July 2016, 3 – 5pm

Privacy in the Digital Age: Is it Time for a New Paradigm?

Privacy in the Digital Age: Is it Time for a New Paradigm? is a public lecture by Dr Jyn Schultze-Melling (Facebook’s Director for Privacy Policy in Europe) and TJ McIntyre (Lecturer in Law at UCD).

Dr Jyn Schultze-Melling will present and explain Facebook’s report “A New Paradigm for Personal Data”. This is the final report from Facebook’s roundtable series about how to create a positive and sustainable future for personal data - for the benefit of individuals, organisations and societies. It reflects the thoughts of 175 experts across 21 roundtables in 11 cities. It concludes that a sustainable personal data environment is one in which users can feel confident, and in which the value exchange is fair, so that the benefits of data are maximised while the harms are minimised.

TJ will respond to the report, setting out a civil liberties perspective on the gathering and use of personal data and critically examining the assumptions underlying arguments for data sharing. His talk will focus on “Why Online Privacy is not Dead - Yet".

Joan Mulvihill, CEO of the Irish Internet Association, will chair the event.
