Social Media and Privacy: A Positive-Sum Game
Friday 10th February 2017, 12:30 – 1:30pm
Guest speakers will discuss how organisations and individuals can enjoy the benefits of social media without sacrificing privacy, quashing the antiquated view that we can’t have both. The forum will explore the rights and responsibilities of both the employee and employer when using social media, and will consider how organisations can use social media as a tool to engage with the public, while also maintaining a strong commitment to citizen privacy.

Privacy as a Human Right in the Digital Age
Friday 9th December, 2016
To commemorate Human Rights Day 2016, CPDP hosted its first free lunchtime seminar on the topic of Privacy as a Human Right in the Digital Age. We were joined by Associate Professor David Lindsay (Monash University) and Professor Megan Richardson (Melbourne Law School) for a presentation followed by discussion. The session explored areas including:
- Defining the concept of privacy
- The status of privacy as a human right
- The relationship between privacy and surveillance
- Emerging issues presenting legal and social challenges, notably: the ‘right to be forgotten’, robotics, big data, and artificial intelligence
- Current issues within the Australian context including the 2016 Census and the Productivity Commission's draft report on Data Availability and Use.
