Law Society of New South Wales: Privacy in a digital age
Drone imaging, data mining, and surveillance by CCTV are ubiquitous. They raise issues of privacy, security, and freedom. Have we given up on privacy as a social norm? How far does the interest in national security extend before our civil rights are infringed?
Angela Merkel has said: "when we do everything that is technologically possible, we damage trust; we sow mistrust. Millions of people who live in undemocratic states are watching very closely to see how the world's democracies react to threats to their security".
Join the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security, Vivienne Thom, the President of the NSW Council for Civil Liberties, Stephen Blanks, and leading privacy lawyer, Gordon Hughes, in conversation with Professor Ben Saul.
