Next week, I’ll be in Toronto, providing a fresh new class of privacy professionals with CIPP/C training. I looked over the list of who will be attending, and it is quite the cross-section of industries being represented. It should be an interesting couple of days, if only because we will be going through the brand-new, updated and reformatted training module.
The number of people taking training classes this year is slightly down, and I can’t figure out why. We would like to host more public training sessions like the one next week in Toronto, but, apart from Ottawa, I’m not sure where we should plan them. I need to hear from you folks as to what cities would attract a couple dozen or so students.
Another option is for your organization to organize private training. We come to you! Do you have a team of people who needs to better understand Canadian privacy? Maybe it’s time for the entire group to bite the bullet and get certified.
I’m saying this, mindful of last week’s comments about adequate training programs used within organizations. Some of you replied to me about how you struggle to get privacy prioritized properly, but others remarked that getting privacy on the radar is becoming easier, which was encouraging to hear. There’s still work to do, but there is definitely a trend in the right direction, based on your feedback.
Have a good weekend, and see a few of you next week!
