Join us for a discussion of data protection and data governance with keynote speakers David Medine and Professor Pamela Hanrahan.

In a world where data protection and data governance are vital elements of both consumer marketing and business strategy, this workshop provides an opportunity to discuss where the demands from consumers and corporate governance obligations both converge and diverge. The workshop will bring together issues flowing from both the Banking Royal Commission and the ACCC Digital Platforms Inquiry, and is designed to cross corporate and consumer law in the rapidly evolving data governance area.

  • David Medine is the lead on data protection and security for the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP). He works to develop novel, consumer-oriented approaches to data protection, and to encourage the creation of cyber security resource centres for developing countries. Read more.
