In our everyday lives we use our debit cards, credit cards and drivers licence on a regular basis to buy things, prove our age or to show we are legal to drive. Our name is listed on all of these documents but we don’t actually need it. The only people who benefit from our names being present on these cards are identity thieves. Gower author, David Birch, explains in his seminar what needs to be done in order for us to keep our identities protected and safe.
David’s book, Digital Identity Management is available from Gower.

Following Wikipedia’s Blackout in protest to the Intellectual Property and Online Piracy acts being debated in America, many have begun wondering what the future could hold for the business models in the film and music industries and whether these business models themselves are outdated.
Jane Lambert, has written a number of articles on her blog, that give a good background to IP policy and the film and music industries:

Weak people who are a waste of space in business! Rape cases that are not so bad, and rape cases that are not so good! Elderly disabled people in Birmingham on the receiving end of threatened budget cuts to the (totally essential) care that they receive. Women even being told they shouldn’t wear mini skirts after 35, or bikinis after 47, or high heels after 51. (Ageist, eh? I wonder what Joan Collins would say to that?). Housemaids in the Middle East being treated like slaves (really very nasty indeed).
I don’t think that you should cherry pick your prejudices. You can’t pick on the weakest. You can’t reserve your Duty of Care remedies for some and not for the others, or create special cases. If you do you will inevitably get into difficulties. You need joined up thinking. Repeat, you need joined up thinking. Otherwise you will get Equality Risk. You will lose hard-earned reputation (as in the case of the Toronto Police or Birmingham City Council). You will get into trouble with all sorts of people and the media, or you will have to eat your words (Ken Clarke MP please note).
The lawyers, who are paid to know exactly what they are doing, will always cost you lots of money.
All of the topics above are current scenario’s being reported in the media and Tony Morden has covered such cases in his book A Short Guide to Equality Risk. In it, Tony analyses components of an Equality, Diversity, and Discrimination (EDD) Agenda: equality, diversity, opportunity, and discrimination to assist you in protecting yourself and your organization from this politically sensitive, and high risk subject.
