|ISPA session on the ‘Snooper’s Charter’ at Parliament & Internet Conference
ISPA ran another packed breakout session at the Parliament & Internet Conference, this time looking at the future of the Communications Data Bill, especially in the light of the Snowden revelations.
The session was chaired by Chi Onwurah MP, with Jamie Bartlett from Demos, Gus Hosein from Privacy International, Martin Hoskins, Privacy Consulting Ltd & Gary Beautridge from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate speaking.
The group acknowledged there was a capability gap for law enforcement, but a solution was needed that didn’t introduce wholesale surveillance and didn’t undermine the UK’s efforts to promote a free and open internet abroad.
