    Oh CoPilot, my CoPilot!

    Oh CoPilot, my CoPilot!

    To kick off our rebooted Talk Data to Me podcast, Daragh chats with Tony Ellis from Buckinghamshire Council in the UK about their journey as an early adopter of Microsoft CoPilot.

    A key theme in the discussion is the importance of fundamental data management disciplines, data nous and acumen in your teams, and figuring out the use cases for these novel technologies.

    Ultimately - the more things change, the more things stay the same - it's about the people and the process to ensure that data delivers!

    Things we learned at conferences in May and early June
    Interesting challenges ahead arising from Regulatory decisions
    Coming attractions in the Data Protection and Data Governance tools market
    The coming convergence of disciplines - and the need to breakdown silos.

    The WhatsApp DPC fine decision (and the pros and cons of where we now find ourselves)
    The UK's bizarre approach to making and breaking deals on things that are central to a chunk of their economy.
    The difference between digital literacy, data literacy, and knowing how to get stuff done with data.

    Talk Data To Me Podcast: The Database of all the Pricks (aka Jabs)

    In this episode of the Talk Data To Me Podcast, the Castlebridge team talk about the social project that is VACCINE CERTIFICATES.

    We discuss the practical, ethical, legal, and fundamental data management issues that these proposed initiatives can raise. Key questions like:

    1) Do we need a Database of all the Pricks?
    2) What are the conditions for terminating the Tagging of the Jabbed?
    3) What safeguards will be rolled out to prevent these technologies being used to discriminate against left handed ginger people?

    And we only mention "BlockChain" ONCE!!

    Talk Data To Me Podcast: The One with Cats In It (Season 2, Ep1)

    In the first episode of Season 2 of the Talk Data To Me Podcast, Daragh O Brien is joined by Katherine O'Keefe (@okeefekat on twitter) and Carey Lening (@privacat on twitter) to discuss:


    Data Adequacy for the UK post Brexit
    The Data Protection & Infosec Snafu that is Clubhouse
    The role of data governance in navigating these kinds of issues!

    The resources link for this episode on the Castlebridge website is here. 

    Useful Links For Topics Discussed

    Daragh wrote about Data Protection by Design and getting data governance fundamentals right to support data protection earlier this month 
    We discussed the possibilities for a Data Adequacy decision in a blog post before Christmas (predates EU Commission Draft Adequacy Decision)
    UK Minister with responsibility for data protection said the quiet bits out loud in the Financial Times, and a summary is available here without having to navigate the paywall. Suffice it to say that the Commission's view that Adequacy is possible if the UK makes no changes to DP laws and implementation appears to be on shaky foundations already.
    Daragh spoke to Newstalk about Clubhouse - news coverage and link to the podcast episode is here.
