Emerging technology – analysing the legal and ethical questions

The world is currently in a state of disruption – through adoption of emerging technology, the future and the way in which we live will change drastically.  Across industries, more devices are becoming sensorised, connected and intelligent.  This not only increases the amount of data collected, but also introduces new risks that need to be analysed. Are you aware of the digital risks and ethical questions that need to be asked when implementing new technology, especially emerging technology?  Nerushka uses her unique experience and forward looking mindset to identify these future risks brought about by emerging technology, such as blockchain, drones, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence and robotics, and packages these into stimulating and thought-provoking presentations.

 

“Nerushka’s presentation was very good. She enlightened us on technology that we would normally disregard. She was clear and confident on the information she was providing. The presentation was exceptional.” – Attendee at DLA Piper Africa Associate Training, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

 

GDPR v POPIA – What you need to know

Following on incidents like Facebook  and Cambridge Analytica, data privacy is becoming of increasing importance to regulators around the world. The GDPR is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. It became enforceable on 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and replaces the EU Data Protection Directive. The GDPR was designed to harmonise privacy laws across Europe. The biggest change comes with the extended jurisdiction of the GDPR as it applies to all companies processing the personal data of data subjects residing in the EU, regardless of the company’s location. Those organisations in non-compliance will face heavy fines of up to 4% on global turnover or EUR20 million – whichever is greater. This talk will give a high-level overview of the GDPR, while emphasising similarities and differences with the South African legislation, the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA).

 

“Thank you so much for your inspiration and motivational contribution you gave to our event last night. I truly think you sparked a light in some of the attendees and gave them motivation they needed for the end of the semester and the future to come.” – Jade Koning, TuksRes Women In Leadership Academy, University of Pretoria.

 

Cryptocurrency – to regulate or not to regulate…?

Bitcoin, blockchain, ICOs and cryptocurrencies have been the buzzwords for the last year. But what do these words actually mean? Is Bitcoin a bubble? Are cryptos just a scam? Is blockchain the solution to everything? Is the ICO hype over? And are these emerging technologies regulated? This talk will break down these buzzwords in an easy to understand manner, discuss a few use cases and provide a regulatory overview of the differing positions taken by regulators all over the world.

 

“I can’t thank you enough for a very informative and enlightening session. ‘Was simply brilliant’ is most of the feedback I received from attendees.” – Tony Murugan, Manager – Engineer Development Program, Transnet Group Capital.
