Canada Dashboard Digest | Notes from the IAPP Canada Managing Director, January 6, 2017 Related reading: App privacy details available in Google Play Store in February 2022




A new year. And a Happy New Year to all of you, from the IAPP. How about some resolutions for the Canadian privacy professional?

Maybe something like:

  1.  Learn even more infosec language and concepts.
  2.  Pay more attention to what politicians are doing regarding our industry.
  3.  Learn a bit more from other areas of privacy (ie., if in health care, learn what they are doing in telecom).
  4.  Get paid more. You’re worth it!
  5.  Be more involved with the IAPP. It will be a huge benefit to you.
  6.  Attend the Symposium in May. Don’t take no for an answer!
  7.  Give Kris more feedback on the weekly Digest. There are always ways to improve.
  8.  Sometimes, say no to giving up your personal information, recognizing that the trade-off simply isn’t worth it.
  9.  If not already certified, think about the CIPP/C or CIPM or CIPT. It will help with resolution number four.
  10.  Remind yourself that your job is the result of the fact that we are headstrong into a brand-new world where the rules have yet to be fully written. There is a need to protect certain things that define what it means to be human. Be part of a privacy force for good. 

Whatever you resolve for 2017, please know that we are here at the IAPP to help. If there is information you need, or a connection we can make, please reach out and let us know.
