Data may well be the fuel of a new digital economy, however individuals fear losing control over their personal information, and resent their profiles being treated like any other bulk industrial commodity. Thus, to fully realize any benefits from processing personal data, appropriate technical, legal, economic and governance arrangements must be put in place to gain the confidence and consent of the wider public.

The Alan Turing Institute Summit on Privacy, organised by UCL, brings together an array of experts and thought leaders in the space of privacy, identity and data protection to discuss the current and future challenges around personal information and privacy. A wide range of speakers will reflect on the public policy, Industry, civil society and technical perspectives around data privacy and data protection, and identify areas where the institute’s outstanding research capacity could provide answers to key societal privacy challenges.
