Modern Confidential: Digital Privacy Today  /  Privacy

The notion of personal privacy in a digital society may be out of date. While many of us say we still want it, we willingly share our data – and dislike paying to protect it. Governments and online businesses covet our personal information. Meanwhile, almost nobody reads the terms and conditions; we merely trust that if something were awry, someone else would have noticed by now.

But what should we be concerned about … and what can we do about it? Why is privacy even important if, as they say, you have nothing to hide?

Hear from computing and information systems researcher Vanessa Teague (University of Melbourne), tech security strategist Rachael Falk (auDA) and employment and industrial relations lawyer Josh Bornstein (Maurice Blackburn). They’ll talk about open data, de-identification, cryptography, social media – and how to defend our rights to both privacy and free speech in our personal and professional lives. #modernconfidential
