MIDBA CPD: Not Love, Actually... How to combat fraud and broken hearts on the internet

Chair: Claire Hogan BL


Michael O’Doherty BL will introduce the various types of fraud that take place online, and discuss two overarching issues;

Online anonymity: why it exists, how it fuels fraudulent behaviour, and what can be done about it.

The liability of platforms: can the apps, and social media platforms, on which the activity takes place be held liable the unlawful activity under data protection, privacy and defamation laws?

Idriss Kechida, EU Head of Privacy for the Match Group (, Tinder, Hinge, Plenty of Fish), navigates the shady world of Cupid stunts, and the legal issues surrounding the world of online dating apps. What can go wrong? Why does it occur? What can be done to combat it?
