    The Future: Proving your Identity

    The Future: Proving your Identity

    In this episode, we talk about the future of credential management – Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) also known as decentralised identity. SSI is an efficient, secure and privacy enhancing solution for identity verification. It puts individuals at the centre of the verification process and is the future of identity management.


    Our special guest, James Monaghan, talks about how Evernym provides solutions in the area of SSI for businesses today. We talk about what SSI means, how it works, the benefits for individuals and businesses and importantly, examples of how it is being used to great effect today.


    For any businesses interested in learning more about how they could benefit from building an SSI or decentralised identity solution, please contact James directly.


    As we enter what is arguably, the start of our journey into a new era of digital innovation with huge benefits to individuals and businesses, we are excited to follow developments around the growth of Self Soverign Identity.

    Regulating the future of AI and ML

    In this episode, we are going to talk about the regulation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to understand what businesses need to think about from a regulatory perspective.


    Our special guest, Ben, talks about the global context of regulations around AI and the complexity of the parallel 'race to AI' and 'race to regulation' . In particular we look at the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act from the European Union and consider the impact on innovation.


    We explore what businesses and DPOs need to consider when building, using or deploying Machine learning or Artificial Intelligence systems.


    As we enter what is arguably, the start of our journey into a new era of innovation with huge benefits to humankind, this podcast will follow developments in and around the regulation of future Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

    Digital Vaccine Passports and Certificates? What could possibly go wrong?

    Digital Vaccine Passports and Certificates? What could possibly go wrong?

    In today’s episode, we are delving into the hot topic of Digital Vaccine Passports and Certificates. We outline the complex mix of technology, privacy and practical issues in a global context.


    As we did in Episodes 24 & 25, we look at the significant practical, technical and privacy issues surrounding how nation states and governments want to use technology to prove human beings can travel internationally, cross borders in the EU and get access to domestic venues, events, retail outlets and much more besides. Arguably a more complex problem to solve than tracking and tracing individuals.


    We consider the lack of effectiveness of the Track and Trace apps in the UK & EU and wonder how acceptable solutions can be found for Vaccine Passports and Certificates - a wider problem involving citizens, businesses, medical records and often new and emerging technology.


    Again, we find ourselves asking the same question: how do we find a rapid and effective way to discuss and agree the extended use of our data to manage this pandemic and halt the damage from lockdowns? We urgently need a forum to be able to have these discussions. As Privacy, Legal and Techology professionals we must contribute to solutions to help support governments to enable better pandemic management.


    There are far more questions than answers, so this episode will be the start of our journey to keep up to date with developments.

    What next for EU-US data transfers post-Privacy Shield? Keep hiding in that herd!

    What next for EU-US data transfers post-Privacy Shield? Keep hiding in that herd!

    The decision by the ECJ on 16th July 2020, to invalidate the EU - US Privacy Shield sent shockwaves across organisations in the EU and US. We are now in January 2021 and there have been some solutions offered by the European Commission.


    But how workable are they for businesses in practise??


    Join me, Karen Heaton and guest Mark Sherwood-Edwards, lawyer, data protection specialist and founder of Clearview Legal to discuss the latest pronouncements from the EC, on a revision of the Standard Contractual Clauses, Safeguards for transfers to the US (and other third countries) and of course, the impact of Brexit and what this will mean if the EC does not grant adequacy status to the UK.

    Track and Trace apps: What price for data privacy? We need to find better solutions.

    Track and Trace apps: What price for data privacy? We need to find better solutions.

    In today’s episode, we are delving into the issues we discussed in our previous episode #24 on the NHS Track and Trace app and considering in more detail the legal, privacy and practicality barriers to many track and trace apps in Europe.


    We discuss the take up of Track and Trace apps in the EU and find it is mostly 30% of the population and lower. Data privacy when using apps has been protected due to EU GDPR, however, other basic freedoms have been taken from us and our way of life severely impacted over the course of 2020. Track and trace apps have not had the hoped-for beneficial impact in the EU. Had we taken a different approach to using more data and made the apps mandatory, could the outcomes have been different?


    What does this mean in practise for track and trace apps as future solutions to help governments manage pandemics? Compare and contrast to other Asian countries.
    If 70 - 80% app usage is realistically needed to be effective, then why did we not make track and trace apps mandatory? What are we to learn from countries in Asia?


    How do we find a rapid and effective way to discuss and agree the extended use of our data to improve outcomes, rapidly, either during pandemics or outside of them? As Privacy, Legal and Tech professionals we must continue this conversation and find a framework for agreeing the greater use of data in a mandatory way to support better pandemic and health outcomes.


    The economic costs of lockdowns are extremely high and have a direct effect on a nation's ability to provide future healthcare. Our short term fix to today's problem could cause many more problems for the future.

    NHS Track and Trace App: are privacy and practicality issues a barrier to success?

    NHS Track and Trace App: are privacy and practicality issues a barrier to success?

    This episode is part of our series of updated podcasts addressing security & privacy concerns resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and the shift in working practises for millions of businesses across the UK and the world.


    In our discussion we first talk about the NHS Track and Trace app and ask "how did we get here?" with app #2 being released five months after app #1.


    We then explore whether track and trace apps are prevented from being successful due to privacy and practicality issues and whether this is a worldwide problem.


    During our discussion, I recommend a very important film "The Social Dilemma" which is available on Netflix. This is an must-watch film for everyone, especially parents with teenagers, pre-teens and young adults.


    Given some of the important issues raised in this episode, we will be recording Part 2, where we bring in a panel of specialists to start the discussions on how to address the practicality and privacy issues which can prevent track and trace apps from being effective during a pandemic.
