“The Privacy Paradox: can privacy law cope with emerging technology?”
Timothy Pitt-Payne QC – 11 King’s Bench Walk Chambers
Timothy Pitt-Payne QC from 11 King’s Bench Walk will speak about the paradox of privacy law and its ability to keep pace with modern technology. On the one hand, privacy law is becoming increasingly assertive and ambitious: the CJEU has abolished the Safe Harbour scheme for transferring personal data to the US and the Court of Appeal has recognised a tort of misuse of private information, and has opened the way for mass litigation for distress in data breach cases. Yet at the same time we are repeatedly told that in an age of cloud computing, big data, and the Internet of Things, privacy is dead and privacy law is futile.
