Canada Dashboard Digest | Notes from the IAPP Canada Managing Director, November 18, 2016 Related reading: Privacy inspection tool finds ad trackers on sensitive nonprofit websites





I sent out some emails this week, trying to get people thinking of, and then submitting, speaking proposals for the Symposium next May. I think a much better way to do this, however, considering my Rolodex isn’t nearly as impressive as the people who read this Digest, is to highlight once again that the call for submissions is open.

But, we’re calling it quits on submissions on Sunday. So, if you have an idea for a speech, panel, or workshop, please take the few moments it takes to submit and get it in.

This past week, I had an opportunity to give a talk to a group of privacy professionals who all work for one large organization. Now, some people might think that large organizations are necessarily bureaucratic.  And, while this group might be slightly more bureaucratic than my five-person law firm, it was refreshing to see the way in which they embrace the quick and nimble world we find ourselves in. And it was even more refreshing to see them tackle the speedy pace and need for innovation with a view of getting the privacy component right at the same time.  

What about you? Does your organization’s bureaucracy get in the way of doing good things? Does red tape mean privacy takes a back seat? And can we do away with some of that red tape, so that we can be ahead of the curve, innovative, and privacy-friendly all at the same time? I think that’s a real challenge. Glad to see some people trying to tackle it head on.
