On June 10, the Vancouver IAPP KnowledgeNet Chapter is hosting a full daylong meeting featuring three speakers. First up will be a lawyer from the RCMP talking about cybercrime; second will be an expert from Vancouver Island Health speaking on health privacy issues; and up third is yours truly.
I’m still working on my presentation for this event. Generally, I can tell you I’ll be speaking about the current privacy landscape in Canada, with an emphasis on what I see as emerging trends.
For sure, the audience will get a good dose of what I think about the need for privacy-law reform in our country, as I compare and contrast what is going on here with what is going on in the United States and Europe. I also expect to explore the challenges we face in our industry when we examine the nitty-gritty details of IoT, big data and the future of AI. Oh, and I don’t think I could get off a soap box without talking at least a little bit about how I think it's high time for privacy to evolve from being an end goal to being a way of doing things. I've touched on each of these topics in this weekly blog, but I do look forward to connecting with some of you on the west coast to discuss and debate them in more depth.
What would you like to see covered in this, or any other, KnowledgeNet? A reminder to our Canadian members: Try to get out to these if you can. And talk to your KnowledgeNet chairs about what would benefit you at the events that take place in your region. And, just generally, get involved! These are great ways to connect to, learn from, and share with the privacy community.
By the way, details of the upcoming British Columbia event are here. Should be a good day!
