BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Speaker Series – U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office, “Privacy Gone Global: Are We There Yet?”

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 @ 12:55 pm - 2:00 pm

Regulating facial recognition technology, algorithms that allocate healthcare, and online targeted ads. Investigating political parties’ buying data to build voter profiles. Levying multi-million dollar fines for data breaches. One regulator is doing it all: Elizabeth Denham of the UK. She will speak about her proactive approach to regulation and the global march of privacy expectations.
Elizabeth Denham is the UK’s Information Commissioner, responsible for data protection compliance and promotion of good privacy practices across the entire UK economy and government sector. A Canadian native, Elizabeth investigated electoral interference by Cambridge Analytica and others, launched new efforts to protect children online, and leads international cooperation among global privacy regulators.

The BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Speaker Series features local practitioners, bringing real world experience and practical legal knowledge to Berkeley Law students.
Lunch is served for students staying for the entire presentation.

Co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology and the Berkeley Technology Law Journal. This event is open to current Berkeley Law students, Berkeley Law affiliates and BCLT law firm sponsors only.
