As part of the 40th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC) the UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham and UK Deputy Information Commissioner Steve Wood are hosting a conversation on how data protection law can protect our electoral integrity.

In July 2018, the ICO published a detailed update of its investigation into the use of data analytics in political campaigns. Accompanying this update was a policy report, titled Democracy Disrupted? Personal information and political influence, where the ICO set out its findings and recommendations arising out of the then 14-month investigation.

Join Elizabeth Denham and Steve Wood for a conversation on the links between data analytics, social media and political campaigning. They will discuss the possible risks to our electoral infrastructure and campaign information systems, as well as their insight into how data protection can help protect the transparency and fairness of electoral processes.

Food Reception included.


  • Elizabeth Denham, UK Information Commissioner
  • Steve Wood, UK Deputy Information Commissioner

Moderated by David Reed, Knowledge and strategy director, DataIQ.
