Functions of a privacy/data protection regulator in an age of big data analytics

The recent Cambridge Analytica scandal reminds us of the vulnerability of personal data to massive abuse. So what are the functions of a privacy/data protection regulator in minimising risks and responding to breaches while maintaining space for ethical data research and analysis? This is the topic of a panel discussion chaired by Megan Richardson, Co-Director CMCL and Director IPRIA at the Melbourne Law School, with the Privacy and Data Protection Deputy Commissioner, Rachel Dixon. They will be joined by big data, information security and legal experts Abigail Payne, Vanessa Teague, Karin Clark and Mark Taylor. This free event is co-hosted by CMCL, IPRIA and the Melbourne School of Government at the University of Melbourne, and the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner (OVIC).
