This is my last (friendly) warning, people: Symposium will sell out and there are only a handful of seats left. We’ve really listened to what you wanted and this year’s conference is not only going to meet those expectations, but surpass them, I'd bet.
Just added is a breakfast networking session with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada; that’s the new Industry Canada. They are going to lead a discussion about what should go into the regulations that are needed with the new PIPEDA (by “new," I mean the one that is about a year old, aka S-4, but has some important things like data breach notification needing regulations before they become law). You asked for access to the decision makers, and, heck, the decision makers asked for access to you … so we did it. And breakfast is supplied, to boot. If you don’t show up that morning to share your thoughts on the regulations, we will assume you needed to sleep in after all the networking and fun at theat the night before. Just remember we also have lots of coffee...
Another reason to reserve your seat: At the symposium: The confirmed new Commissioner for the U.K. will be there, providing a keynote speech. Of course, you’ll want to give your congrats in person to Commissioner Denham and, knowing her, she’ll do her best to say hi to everyone during the sessions and networking opportunities. Maybe we can try and glean whether she’s picking up a new British accent?
A handful of other commissioners are coming too, and, year after year, the feedback confirms that this conference highlights, above all others, just how approachable our regulators are. Don’t miss your chance to talk with the decision makers. After all, we know they come to the conference so that they can hear, firsthand, what’s on the mind of the Canadian privacy pro.
It’s sure to be an awesome opportunity for everyone coming. I hope you don’t miss it (at least I can say I warned you).
