RoS and Informed Solutions to present at Australian summit

Published: 02 March 2016

Registers of Scotland's (RoS) business development director, John King, and Informed Solutions' UK CEO Seth Finegan and will travel to Australia to deliver a joint presentation at the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) Navigating Privacy and Security Summit. As partners in RoS's digital transformation programme, their presentation will explore the imperatives, approach and outcomes that such a collaborative approach requires.

The summit, taking place on Tuesday 8 March 2016 at the National Convention Centre, Canberra, will examine the implications of privacy and security in today's ubiquitously connected, data driven world. The agenda will cover topics such as digital identity; open data and data sharing; the implications of technologies such as cloud computing; data analytics and the Internet of Things; and perceived tensions between privacy, security, and innovation. Informed are among the sponsors of this prestigious event.

Key innovative players from the ICT industry and from State and Federal Government will discuss how to ensure Australia is cyber-secure across all sectors. Reflecting the increasing intensity of global, digital disruption, AIIA's 2016 summit will examine privacy and security in the digital environment from an economic and social perspective - rather than simply a technological approach.

RoS business development director, John King added;

"At RoS we are proud custodians of some of the oldest property registers in the world. Our digital transformation programme will turn the world's oldest register into one of the most modern, but with that comes a very modern set of challenges in maintaining the privacy and security of 400 years of records. It is therefore critical that we build in the very highest protection against cyber-attack."

Informed's UK CEO, Seth Finegan said;

"In an increasingly digital world, cyber security is becoming ever more crucial. At Informed Solutions our clients include Government bodies from areas such as criminal justice, financial services and health and social care, so the type of data that we are routinely working with is of a highly sensitive nature. It is therefore imperative that we stay ahead of the curve in matters of privacy and security."
