Living in a connected world: who owns my data, and why should I care?

Nedbank EEBI Seminar 4


Six morning seminars, each covering critical energy, electricity and issues facing South Africa, are planned. The seminars each provide practical solutions that can unlock bottlenecks, mitigate risk and encourage investment, economic growth and job creation. The seminars each involve broad policy, regulatory, social, economic business, labour and community issues that are topical and relevant for the year ahead.

Seminar 4:

Living in a connected world: who owns my data, and why should I care?

Being connected via the Internet brings with it numerous benefits to the individual. It also gives rise to significant threats. This seminar will focus on the individual citizen in 21st Century South Africa. In this age of Big Data, social media and the Internet of Things (IoT) many of the personal and non-personal aspects of our day-to-day activities and transactions are stored as data by both businesses and governments. Who owns our data and what rights do we have in determining how it is used? While in many countries the question of data privacy is hotly debated, South Africans have generally not given these issues high priority. The existing legal framework (including the POPI Act) will be reviewed. Case studies from both an international and South African perspective will throw light on the various dimensions around the key question: Who owns my data, and why should I care?
