Webinar series: Human Rights and Business Dilemmas Forum - Privacy [28 Oct]

Lights at night

28 October, 3pm BST (10am EDT), online

Privacy webinar

Presented by:

  • Director, Gus Macfarlane
  • Human Rights and Societal Risk Specialist Yann Lebrat

Description: As part of a series presented by Maplecroft in association with the United Nations Global Compact and the GE Foundation, the HRBDF webinar will explore how responsible businesses can best respect the right to privacy of customers, employees and other relevant stakeholders – whilst protecting their own legitimate legal and commercial interests. The webinar will examine the challenges faced by companies operating in locations where the right to privacy is inadequately protected and/or is undermined by local law – with a particular focus on ‘higher risk’ sectors such as information technology and telecommunications. This will include an examination of how responsible companies are responding to state-backed mass surveillance programmes in key jurisdictions – as well as the expanding use of digital surveillance in countries with poor human rights records.
