KPMG and OPC panel on information sharing

Register now for this facilitated discussion in Wellington on 2 November 2017 where public sector leaders will discuss what’s appropriate when sharing personal information. An important part of this conversation will be the safeguard and oversight mechanisms necessary to ensure people have confidence that their personal information is being respected.

The panel discussion - which is jointly hosted by KPMG and OPC - will encompass the evolving conversation about the concept of a ‘social licence’ to share people’s information. 

Privacy Commissioner John Edwards will facilitate the discussion.

Our panellists are: 

  • Dr Ang Jury, Chief Executive, Women’s Refuge
  • Dorothy Adams, Acting Chief Executive, Social Investment Agency
  • Liz MacPherson, Chief Executive, Statistics NZ and Government Statistician
  • James Mansell, Data Scientist and Social Entrepreneur

The KPMG and OPC panel discussion on information sharing will be held at KPMG, 10 Customhouse Quay, Wellington beginning at 4pm and going to 5.30pm.

It is free to attend. Register here.
