ORG Cambridge & Cambridge University Trust & Technology Initiative present a special event exploring Brexit’s implications for UK life online.


Javier Ruiz – Policy Director at Open Rights Group

Javier will explain how post-Brexit international trade deals with the United States and other countries could impact UK rights online. Trade agreements increasingly include clauses to promote digital trade, which unfortunately tend to translate into weakening the protection of the personal data of ordinary people and increasing the protections on the algorithms and trade secrets of businesses. Entering these agreements will put the UK in a difficult position as it strives to maintain the current arrangements for data flows with the EU.

Mike Morel – Campaigns Manager at Open Rights Group

Mike will provide an overview of EU laws and institutions that currently influence UK rights to free speech online and digital privacy. Find out which protections will disappear, which will remain, and what could happen in a no-deal scenario.

Attendance is free. All are welcome!
