The Echo Chamber podcast.
Hosts Martin McMahon (top right) and Tony Groves (left) are joined in the ‘tortoise shack’ by Simon McGarr (centre) solicitor at McGarr Solicitors, Director at Data Compliance Europe and blogger at tuppenceworth.ie.
Given the importance of this podcast we decided to split it into two parts. In the first 45mins Simon deals with what Data is, what the law requires of the State and whether a satisfactory explanation has been given for the mandatory, but not compulsory Public Services Card. There’s also a neat story about how using Freedom of Information requests can reveal secrets that are EXEMPT from FOI requests….
Part 2 tomorrow.
