On 25 May, our data rights will change with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Over the next fortnight, the Corsham Institute (Ci) and RAND Europe Observatory for a Connected Society – the only app and web platform dedicated to bringing together the latest research, insight and analysis on all aspects of digital and tech policy – will be focusing on the topic of data.
During this period, the Observatory will host:
- A series of themed digests showcasing the best recent research on different issues, such as public attitudes to data, data and health, and data security.
Exclusive articles looking at different aspects of personal data and digital rights, written by some of the leading experts in the field, including: Alan Mitchell (Mydex), Natalie Banner (Wellcome Trust), Simon Burall (involve), Shai Blackwell (Anatomy Health), Chandana Fitzgerald (Health XL), Sonali Parekh (Federation of Small Businesses), Sue Lewis (Financial Services Consumer Panel) and Jeremy Lilley (techUK).
- An update from Ci’s CEO, Rachel Neaman, on our Your Data, Your Rights project including findings from our new survey and details on next steps.
- A new analysis piece from the team at RAND Europe
The Observatory for a Connected Society will also be teaming up with techUK to support their Data Protection Week which kicks off on Monday 21 May.
As well as providing the latest insight on all things digital at your fingertips, the Observatory has recently launched its new community section where you can post comments, start discussions and build your own network. Download the app and get involved! We look forward to hearing your views.
