There is a changing risk profile in the research sector. Technological developments can facilitate wide-scale data linkage, AI can turbo-charge analytics, funders and publishers are pushing for ‘open data’, yet at the same time community expectations with regards to privacy protections are increasing. Both locally and globally, we are seeing a strengthening of privacy laws, which impact on organisations’ ability to collect, analyse, link and share data about people.
How do researchers and data scientists navigate the rules and requirements?
This 90 minute webinar, co-presented by leading privacy practitioners Anna Johnston and Andrea Calleia, will cover the core concepts needed to understand how to comply with privacy law when conducting research, evaluation, data linkage or data analytics.
