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:
- Learn even more infosec language and concepts.
- Pay more attention to what politicians are doing regarding our industry.
- Learn a bit more from other areas of privacy (ie., if in health care, learn what they are doing in telecom).
- Get paid more. You’re worth it!
- Be more involved with the IAPP. It will be a huge benefit to you.
- Attend the Symposium in May. Don’t take no for an answer!
- Give Kris more feedback on the weekly Digest. There are always ways to improve.
- Sometimes, say no to giving up your personal information, recognizing that the trade-off simply isn’t worth it.
- If not already certified, think about the CIPP/C or CIPM or CIPT. It will help with resolution number four.
- 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.
