Consenting to surveillance in an era of Smart CCTV
This lecture style session will explore the notion of ‘surveillance by consent’. It will examine what it means to live in a surveillance society, with specific reference to CCTV and the recent emergence of ‘Smart’ CCTV, at the heart of which are new data processes and analytical techniques. The session will address questions about how we, the public, consent to our own surveillance, and how public policy can keep abreast of fast moving technological developments, including whether data generated by CCTV should be publically available.

Hear from Professor William Webster (Director, CRISP - Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy) an international expert on the governance of CCTV and surveillance in everyday life.
