Invitation to Working Party on Apr 12 @BCS British Computer Society to Respond to Official Secrets Act

The British Computer Society is committed to making IT good for society!

In that spirit, the Specialist Law Group has organised a Working Party Event to respond to the Public Consultation into the Protection of Official Data aka the Official Secrets Act. In a way, technology has already taken the law unto itself by controlling access, publications and search algorithms. Hence the ethics, motivations and intentions behind public and private organisations and their online activities require more and more scrutiny, if not ‘community policing’.

Hence you are invited to make your contribution next Wednesday April 12th from 12.30 until 9pm in 5 Southampton Street in Covent Garden. You’ll be fed for free!

A first set of Points of Discussion were put together at the previous meeting, where Prof. Ormerod QC pointed us to this 32-page summary.

What we will debate are these 28 preliminary conclusions and questions.

See you there and then or comment here! But PLEASE book your place, otherwise the glasses of wine can’t be counted in advance!

  1. I wish I lived within commuter distance; but just not possible from Carmarthenshire without an over night stay.
