2019 Symposium focused on
finding certainty in uncertain times
Where do you look for stability in tumultuous times? Counterintuitively, in change, flexibility and adaptability, according to speakers at the IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium 2019.
The range of topics tackled at the Symposium was vast ̶ technology, legislation, regulation, policy. Yet, a common thread emerged: build privacy management systems to adapt, because things aren’t quieting down in the near future.
Privacy Commissioner of Canada Daniel Therrien advocated for a flexible definition of privacy based on principles that don’t change in the face of technological advancement. His fellow keynote speaker, Health Standards Organization Chief Digital Officer Amy Yee, urged adopting fundamental attitudinal changes. International privacy advocate Max Schrems theorized that litigation will influence the course of GDPR enforcement, all but ensuring non-stop flux.
While not contemplating the big issues in privacy, the Symposium crowd networked at the 5-Minute Mixer and the Privacy Soirée at Steam Whistle Brewing, engaged exhibitors at the Welcome Reception, and saw past and present privacy commissioners match wits in the Commissioners’ Game Show. Scroll down to see the highlights.
