The Institute for Government was delighted to welcome the UK’s Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham CBE, to speak in conversation with Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government.
From Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, to private companies providing public services: data protection and information rights are at the heart of many of today’s biggest stories.
Elizabeth Denham explored what the future holds for personal data in the UK, how citizens and consumers can be protected, and discussed her recent report Outsourcing Oversight? The case for reforming access to information law.
Elizabeth Denham CBE has been Information Commissioner since July 2016 and in that role upholds both access to information and data protection rights.
