bto solicitors are pleased to announce that we are hosting the inaugural Scottish Conference for NADPO – National Association of Data Protection Officers in our offices at One Edinburgh Quay.
Confirmed speakers are Aidan O’Neill QC on the “Named Person” legislation and litigation challenging its legality, and Pol Clementsmith from the Open Rights Group will also be discussing fears that the centralised health database proposed by the Scottish Government will be utilised as a national ID system, similar to the UK ID card system rejected by the UK government in 2010. Laura Irvine, Solicitor Advocate and former procurator fiscal, will discuss how data protection is enforced in Scotland.
Partner and Solicitor Advocate Paul Motion, head of bto’s Data Protection Defence team, said: “NADPO has a strong presence in England and Wales, bringing together practitioners, academics and legal minds who are interested in everything data protection related. At bto, we share that passion and we’re therefore delighted to be hosting this event, which we hope will be the first of many to come.”
The conference will present an opportunity to network and meet like-minded data protection enthusiasts. The format will consist of refreshments at 9.30am with the conference running from 10am until 1.00pm, followed by a light buffet lunch.
