The keynote stage for the IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium in May is all set. I gave out a hint on LinkedIn yesterday.
First, Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien will deliver his annual address to the profession. Then, University of Ottawa Information Law and Policy Canada Research Chair Teresa Scassa will offer some of her innovative and thought-provoking ideas — maybe she’ll talk a bit about what she thinks of all the news stories concerning law enforcement’s use of artificial intelligence and facial-recognition technology. You can catch a sneak peek here.
On day two, the inaugural Ian Kerr Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Ian’s good friend and colleague Michael Geist. Then, to round out the agenda, Gabrielle Scrimshaw will take the stage and, as an indigenous professional, will offer a talk filled with ideas that every privacy professional in Canada needs to be thinking about.
Sandwiched between keynote sessions will be a ton of breakout programming and, of course, the Dragon’s Den Commissioners’ game show.
Why am I using this space to highlight the Symposium? It’s because you have exactly one week left to register and take advantage of the early bird rate. Even if you’re not spending your own money, do the right thing and take advantage!
So, read up on this week’s news and put doing that privacy impact assessment on hold for just a moment to get registered.
Speaking of that PIA, did you catch that the Office of the Privacy Commissioner released updated guidance on PIAs this past week? We have a little story about it below. Enjoy!
