Reflections on the Tensions between Transparency, Access to Information and Personal Data

This event requires that you pre-register or buy tickets.

Description
Former Scottish Information Commissioner Rosemary Agnew will deliver the 2017 Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy (CRISP) Annual Lecture. Rosemary has been Scottish Public Services Ombudsman since 1 May 2017, but is better known to many of us as the Scottish Information Commissioner: a post she held for five years from 2012. Rosemary is committed to openness and transparency of public services, a critical part of which is access to data and information. Through her work as Information Commissioner and Ombudsman, and through personal interest, she has gained a unique perspective on the relationship between data, information, access and public service. In this lecture, a retrospective of Rosemary's work as the Information Commissioner for Scotland, she will share some of her thoughts on this relationship and how it has developed over time.
