Lewis Silkin’s afternoon conference provides a fantastic opportunity to catch up with peers, hear the latest from experts and specialist workplace privacy lawyers from around the world and find out what’s on the horizon. As ever, developments in workplace data and privacy have continued apace in 2023. Join us as we navigate some of the developments that will be of most interest to global employers going forward, including:

  • Artificial intelligence and the world of work

We discuss what use cases are already being made of AI in the workplace, what use cases will exist in the future, what are the dos and don’ts from both a data & privacy and an employment law perspective; with a special focus on a) AI monitoring applications and 2) how to combat the hot topic of discrimination bias in training AI models.

  • Speakers: Bryony Long, Co-Head of Data Privacy & Cyber at Lewis Silkin; David Lorimer, Legal Director at Lewis Silkin; and Adriano Koshiyama, Co-founder at Holistic AI
  • Data Subject Access Requests

In this interactive scenario-led session, we look at the lifecycle of an employment subject access request from receipt to response to data subject challenges and possible regulatory complaints, through both a UK and a European lens.

  • Speakers: Benjamin Favaro, Managing Associate at Lewis Silkin; Sean Illing, Managing Associate at Lewis Silkin; and Florence Chafiol, Partner at August Debouzy.
  • Protecting your business from your greatest asset: your people

All organisations want to safeguard the significant investment they make in their people, and in the business generated by their people. Losing a key employee, to a competitor or because of a breakdown in the relationship, can be extremely damaging. As well as losing clients, prospects and other team members, you may also lose valuable business data – be it in the form of confidential information, intellectual property or personal data. This threat posed by insiders is one faced by all organisations, and recognised as one of the hardest to protect against. So what do we have in the toolkit when preparing for and responding to incidents involving departing and/or disgruntled employees, and how can we use those tools in a way that complies with data & privacy laws? These are some of the questions we will address in this session.

  • Speakers: Ali Vaziri, Partner at Lewis Silkin; and Linda Hynes, Partner at Lewis Silkin.
