NEWBURY, UK -- Vodafone Group today published its first Law Enforcement Disclosure report which provides a detailed insight into the legal frameworks, governance principles and operating procedures associated with responding to demands for assistance from law enforcement and intelligence agencies across 29 countries. The report - which is the first of its kind published anywhere in the world - consists of three sections:

  • a detailed overview of the legal, governance and operational factors underpinning law enforcement and intelligence agency access to customers' private data;
  • a country-by-country section providing aggregate statistical data where permissible, both from Vodafone’s local operations and from official sources, on the volume of demands made by government authorities, and summaries of the outcome of Vodafone's extensive analysis of the extent to which it is lawful to disclose information related to agency and authority demands; and
  • a legal annexe summarising the most relevant legislation governing agency and authority access to customer data in each of Vodafone's 29 countries of operation. This information has not previously been published by any operator and is made available by Vodafone on a Creative Commons licence to enable others to expand the body of work over time.

    The report covers agency and authority demands for lawful interception and communications data for the period 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014. It will be updated at least annually in future and can be found online at www.vodafone.com/sustainability/lawenforcement

    Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

    During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

    She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
