Nabiha Syed

They say that data can be more valuable than gold, especially when starting a business. But it can also be tricky to handle, and when things go wrong, you’re in big trouble! That’s why it’s so important to understand how to mange data and use it to your advantage.

Join us as Nabiha Syed from The Markup introduces us to data protection and how you’re able to protect yourself, ethical thinking and the differences in the protection of your intellectual property. Nabiha is the President of The Markup, a new investigative journalism startup that explores how powerful actors use technology to reshape society.

Previously, Nabiha was Vice President and Associate General Counsel at BuzzFeed. As the company’s first newsroom lawyer, she oversaw litigation, including the “Steele Dossier”, as well as select intellectual property, security, international, and cross-company strategic initiatives.

Nabiha has been described as “one of the best emerging free speech lawyers” by Forbes magazine. Before BuzzFeed, Nabiha was an associate at Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz, a leading media law firm, and the First Amendment Fellow at The New York Times. She has worked on legal access issues at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; represented asylum-seekers in south Texas; counselled on whether to publish hacked materials; and spoken about misinformation at the inaugural Obama Foundation Summit.

This event will be held virtually on Zoom.
