4:10 pm - 4:40 pm eDiscovery: Helping to Tame the “Information Explosion” and Digital Continuity

Marlize Palmer, Head of Information and Archive Services & Departmental Records,Government of Wales
Organisations are feeling the pressure of the information explosion. The volume of digital information found on computers, mobile devices and storage media is doubling every two years. Our current information management systems, policies and practices cannot cope with the growing variety of data and its complexity. It has become nearly impossible to efficiently get data in and out of our systems.  At the same time the information is becoming unusable through technology dependence, format obsolescence or the limited choice of rendering or viewing software available.
Information professionals are turning to “non-traditional tools” such as eDiscovery for finding, managing, and ensuring the digital continuity of this messy data.
This paper concentrates on information professionals’ exploration of these “non-traditional” tools such as eDiscovery for finding, managing, and ensuring the digital continuity all of this unstructured data that has accumulated over the years in network drives, mailboxes, and other locations.

4:40 pm - 5:10 pm Impact of Processing Personal Data Under Legitimate Interest - GDPR vs UK DP Bill

Paulina Jedwabska, Head of Information Governance and Departmental Records Officer,‎Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS)
Under the GDPR, business can process personal data only if, and to the extent that, at least one lawful basis applies: Consent, Contractual, Legal obligation, Vital interests, Public tasks and Legitimate interests – processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. This shall not apply to processing carried out by public authorities in the performance of their tasks.
In UK Legitimate interest shall not apply to processing carried out by public authorities in the performance of their public tasks but can be used for non-public task processing. We are going to explore what this means in reality.
