Conference announcement - Benefit or burden? New developments in information rights, communication and compliance

We are delighted to announce a joint conference between CAIS and the University's Centre for Freedom of Information, to be held 4 October 2013. It will include, for the first time at the same event, contributions from Christopher Graham, the Information Commissioner, Rosemary Agnew, the Scottish Information Commissioner and Tim Ellis, Chief Executive, National Records of Scotland. Euan Semple, author of 'Organisations don't tweet - people do', will deliver a keynote on the changing relationship between organisations, people, information and communication.

The conference will explore the developments in the enforcement and extension of information legislation, the implications of new forms of communication for organisations and the role of records management in a changing regulatory and operational environment. This is an essential event for practitioners and researchers concerned with freedom of information, data protection and records and information management.
