"If you aren't paying for the product, then you are the product".

The standard internet business model has become “surveillance capitalism” – taking users' data, applying analytics and pushing back personalised advertising.

Personal Data Stores only grant access to data on a need to know basis, or via a commercial contract. This disruptive technology seeks to put power back into the hands of users. We will look at the technical, legal, and commercial fundamentals that will predict the outcomes in this exciting new market segment.

This interactive workshop will feature three short presentation concluding with an open forum. Registration opens at 5.00pm with the first session at 5.30PM and the event will conclude with networking over refreshments and pizza. This event is kindly hosted by the Bradfield Centre.
