Digital Research Conversations Data Security – Peeping Through the Great Digital Wall
Date: Wednesday 14th March 2018 (12:00-14:00)
Location: Committee Room, Computer Centre, Elms Road

Dear All,

You are warmly invited to participate in the Digital Research Conversations – Data Security – Peeping Through the Great Digital Wall on the 14th March 2018

The Digital Research Conversations feature short talks from University of Birmingham researchers. The event will start with pizza for everybody who joins us 12:00-12:30 and we will hold a panel Q & A session after the talks.

With so much attention being given to data security, should we just carry on as normal or do we become paranoid? The second in our series, we will look at data security from the varied angles of our provocative and engaging speakers, leading to a stimulating conversation.

Jeremy Kidwell, previously a Network security manager and now a lecturer in Theological Ethics, will propose the use of security in the overzealous world. Ian Batten is part of the Security and Privacy Group in Computer Science, where he currently lectures on ‘where computer security and networks meet’. David W. Evans is a clinician and expert in musculoskeletal pain based in Sports Science. Being involved in collecting patient data, David is concerned about the new Data Protection laws (GDPR) starting in May and how it is going to affect researchers. We will also be joined by Alberto Guglielmi for the panel session. As Project Officer for GDPR within Legal Services, he will be able to answer questions regarding data protection.

We will be looking for topics and speakers for future sessions and welcome talks and input from early career researchers, as well as from more experienced academics or staff from Professional Services who support researchers.

 If you would like to join us, please register at our Eventbrite page so we can order enough pizza :-):
