Canada Dashboard Digest | Notes from the IAPP Canada Managing Director, July 25, 2014 Related reading: App privacy details available in Google Play Store in February 2022




The dog days of summer are definitely upon us. The longer days and warmer weather are so enjoyable it can sometimes make it a little tough to stick to our various project schedules at work. If only that PIA would take a little vacation, eh?

For me, work is particularly busy, in part thanks to my friends in the Maritimes who have relatively large privacy projects that need to be completed well before the school season starts again. Speaking of school starting up again reminds me that I need to plan out my fall course for the law school here in Ottawa. Gosh, I’m glad the days are a little longer, ‘cause I can definitely use the extra time. While we all hope for things to slow down a bit, do they really?

So, what are you up to this summer? Are you hunkering down and completing that project that has lingered just a little too long? Catching up on your reading? Enjoying a bit of a much-earned slower period?

I know I’m not the only privacy professional who is busy this summer. Read on for more details relating to the folks at Privacy Analytics; it's a great success story.

Also in the news this week—though not specifically related to Canadian news&mdashis an interesting article written about how localization provisions in privacy laws are becoming more and more difficult to deal with. In Canada, we only have two provinces with strict localization laws—BC and Nova Scotia’s public sector laws. But even with just the two, I know these laws can pose interesting challenges that need to be dealt with. I guess you can say this is another issue that is keeping me, and very likely others in our bustling field, busy this summer.

Regardless, please remember to enjoy the sun and cherish those warmer days before they are far behind us. Have a great weekend, and read on for your news of the week.
