On Friday 20th November, 2015, I was privileged to have been given the opportunity to present to the Trinidad and Tobago Chapter of ISACA on the topic “Privacy and the Law in the ‘Oversharing’ Era“.

The idea for the topic stemmed from the recent Trinidad and Tobago case of Therese Ho v Lendyl Simmons and the public debate that has been generated on the issue of privacy.

Also featured in the presentation were the legal considerations of posting on social media.

The discussion on privacy also led to a debate on the right of publicity available to celebrities and whether ordinary citizens should be able to claim intellectual property rights if they are the subject of photographs, rather than the photographer.

Here are some photographs from the event:
