Canada Dashboard Digest | Notes from the IAPP Canada Managing Director, September 16, 2016 Related reading: Privacy inspection tool finds ad trackers on sensitive nonprofit websites





Three things happened this week that deserve kudos:

First, Nymity was awarded one of the HPE-IAPP Privacy Innovation Awards at the IAPP Privacy. Security. Risk. conference in San Jose, California. Good on Terry McQuay and his team — originally based in Toronto but now all over the world — to continue to push the envelope and come up with innovative solutions for the privacy professional. It’s another example of Canadian know-how doing well on the international stage. Congrats to them!

Second, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada finally launched its new website and after spending a bit of time surfing around, I think it too deserves praise. It is light years better than the previous version. Well organized and chock-full of useful information. As a frequent user of the site, I think it's going to meet the needs of the privacy expert and the average non expert citizen.

Third, the IAPP, too, has done some reorganizing of sorts and officially launched its IAPP Communities section of the website. With over 26,000 members worldwide, it is important for everyone to feel like they belong. So, to help, the IAPP now has smaller communities that you may want to belong to in order to get the most out of your membership. Check them out … and if you think we need a separate or new community that’s not there, let me know.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
