As debate continued to surround the scale of surveillance in the UK, this seminar addressed issues of surveillance and personal privacy. Sessions focused on the extent of personal information collected by Government, public bodies and industry, and how this is stored and shared between Government departments and external agencies. Furthermore, sessions looked at the growth of the DNA database, the interception of communications data by public bodies and the introduction of the National Identity Register, examining how to balance security and civil liberties. The seminar also examined the role of the Information Commissioner and questioned whether the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and Data Protection Act need revising.
