Holyrood’s 15th Annual Freedom of Information conference will consider the implications of the expansion of FOISA and ask whether this expansion will be extended further, in the process debating if this would improve government efficiency. We will also explore the differences between FOI and Environmental Information Regulation (EIR) requests and consider the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The FOISA Conference 2015 was a well organised and information filled event. I learned a great amount from the break-out sessions and would recommend attendance to all who are involved in data protection, freedom of information and information governance.
