Canada Dashboard Digest | Notes from the IAPP Canada Managing Director, Feb. 17, 2023 Related reading: NIST discusses multifactor authentication


This week registration opened for the IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium 2023. The main conference will be held May 25 and 26, with training and workshop days preceding. Here’s a link so you can check out this exciting program. Be sure to register early to take advantage of the discounted pricing.

There are so many sessions I’m looking forward to. To begin, it will be Privacy Commissioner of Canada Philippe Dufresne’s first annual address to the profession and I’m excited to hear what he’s learned so far and what his priorities might be going forward.

Of course, there’s also the Commissioners’ Game Show which I suppose I should get planning. If you have ideas about a game show themed panel, drop me a line in the comments.

There are also sessions on artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and legislative updates. Speaking of which, I wonder if Bill C-27 will advance through the House by the time we meet at the end of May. Of course, we will tackle the new regime in Quebec, some Indigenous privacy issues and tackle health care privacy. I’m hoping for about a thousand of us to be there, so we’ve tried to make sure there is something for everyone.

We will be at a new venue too, which is also pretty exciting. It’s always fun to try something new.

Before I let you go, I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you about the other big conference I’m looking forward to in the spring. The IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington. It’s likely going to attract more than five thousand privacy pros. Last year, the first GPS post-pandemic was really amazing and I can’t wait to see how they’ll top it. They always do. Here’s a link to the conference page. I’d love to hear who’s planning to go to D.C. and Toronto, and can’t wait to see everyone in person!

Have a great weekend.
