Event details

This seminar will explore the expansion in the importance of our identities and the notion of identifiability in the digital domain. We will be talking about the legal issues raised by the EPSRC project we worked together on called ‘Super Identity’, which was aimed at developing a holistic identity model to establish associations or links between different identity measures drawn from both the physical and the cyber world. In particular the successful anonymisation of data subjects has become a very difficult challenge, giving rise to intense debate not just for regulators and in the legal world, but also for academic researchers in general. Consequently, issues of dynamic informed consent, data sharing and management, require renewed consideration. At the same time, account is taken of the Data Protection and Privacy legal reform proposals that are currently making their way onto the law books in the EU and the US.
