Privacy Commissioner of Canada Daniel Therrien Talks Privacy Goals

In an address at the 2015 IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium 2015, Privacy Commissioner of Canada Daniel Therrien discussed his first “trial by fire” year as commissioner, as well as his goals for privacy in the OPC.  “The priority setting exercise began with a vision: to increase the control Canadians have over their personal information,” he said. “This is perhaps a lofty goal in the age of big data, but that is our overall goal.”
