is metadata, what is at stake and what you can do about it?
Privacy Workshop presents a panel of discussion and Q&A
surrounding a controversial Bill, with three expert presenters
moderated by LIV president, Katie Miller.
(Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill 2014
(the Bill) will require telecommunications providers to retain
prescribed categories of data about all their customers for 2 years.
The Bill has been referred to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on
Intelligence and Security (PJCIS). The PJCIS is expected to table its
report on 27 February 2015.
The panel will discuss
the Bill and pose questions to attendees such as:
- Do you know what
metadata is in the context of the government’s controversial
data retention proposals?
- Are you aware of how
the Data Retention Bill 2014 will impact you and communications with
- Have you thought about
how data retention might not only intrude on privacy, but impact
freedom of expression and association?
is the LIV’s position that the Bill should
not be passed. This session
provides an opportunity for the public and legal practitioners to ask
questions and hear expert discourse on the Bill and its ramifications
on the community. Attendees will be provided with resources to assist
them in voicing an opposition to the Bill.
