The Office of the Data Protection Authority (ODPA) have released its Bijou Lecture 2023.

This year’s guest lecturer is law and policy expert Elizabeth M. Renieris, an expert on data governance and the human rights implications of new and emerging technologies.

The author of ‘Beyond Data: Reclaiming Human Rights at the Dawn of the Metaverse’, her passion for data protection was ignited at university when a classmate hacked into internal residential house directories, scraped the student ID photos of female residents from their pages and pitted the undergraduate women against each other on a website called Facemash. Her classmate was Mark Zuckerberg, who went on to control one of the most powerful companies in the world.
