Derek Lackey, CIPM


Newport Thomson

Managing Director

With more than 30 years operating an advertising agency, Derek is focussed on data protection & privacy and its effect on the brand. The author of CASL Compliance: A Marketer’s Guide to Email Marketing to Canadians, he looks to simplify the implementation of new data management practices within organizations such that they comply with global laws such as GDPR, PIPEDA, CASL and CCPA, while taking good care of their prospects and customers. He believes making compliance practical makes compliance feasible.

Derek is active in the privacy community chairing the Guidance Committee, Canadian Advisory Council – GDPR, co-chair, IAPP Toronto Chapter – 2020/2021, committee member on ISO 31700 – Privacy by Design for Consumer Products, the CEN CENELEC JTC 13 on Cybesecurity and Data Protection and the new Standard Council of Canada’s initiative - Data Governance Standardization Collaborative (DGSC).
