There’s one thing I know for sure: The privacy industry is dynamic. It has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, and I’m sure it will continue to evolve in the future. This is one of the reasons I strongly believe in continuing education. Lord knows where I would be if I didn’t bother to learn about new laws, policies, best practices and technologies that are constantly changing.
For me, one of the best ways to stay on top of things is by attending conferences. But I’m a discerning consumer. I choose where I spend my time and money carefully, and I suspect most of you do, too. This is why I always try to profile the IAPP Canada Symposium that is held in May every year. For Canadian privacy professionals, there’s no better way to get top-notch education all at once.
I’m mentioning this now because it’s time to start programming the content for next year’s conference. So, we are looking for great presenters and teachers to put up their hand and let us know they have something to teach. If you have an idea, go here and tell us about it. Soon, the folks on the Canadian Advisory Board are going to cull through every proposal and choose the best ones.
Year after year, we hear feedback that the programming at Symposium is unparalleled. It’s true, but it all starts by getting good people like yourselves willing to step forward. Oh, and the perk, if the CAB chooses you to speak, is that you get a conference pass. Well worth it!
