Video update: UN's Big Data–Open Data consultation process: insights from Professor Joseph Cannataci, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Privacy

August 2018

We recently had the privilege of catching up with Professor Joseph Cannataci, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Privacy, to discuss the UN's Big Data–Open Data consultation process. Watch the video for his insights on the rapidly changing global privacy landscape.

Partner Michael Park and Professor Cannataci discuss:

  • the tensions associated with protecting individual privacy and the increasing availability and use of digital data;
  • the benefits of a comprehensive privacy protection framework for individuals and businesses; and
  • the risks associated with de-identification of data.

The UN Rapporteur's visit was supported by the Allens Hub for Technology, Law and Innovation.
