TORONTO, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - On September 17, 2007, Ontario's Information
and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, will be presenting the inaugural
lecture at the University of Toronto's new interdisciplinary Identity, Privacy
and Security Initiative (IPSI).
This initiative links two new graduate concentrations in privacy and
security, offered this fall through the Faculty of Applied Science and
Engineering and the Faculty of Information Studies.
A key goal of IPSI is to bring together faculty and students from
different disciplines to study and think together about identity, privacy and
security and related technologies, policies and sciences.
In her lecture, Commissioner Cavoukian will be discussing how privacy can
remain a viable option as we enter into an age where we are immersed in a rich
information environment, frequently sharing information about ourselves and
others. Her "privacy by design" will feature prominently as an essential
component of her lecture.
The Commissioner will be presenting the inaugural lecture at the George
Ignatieff Theatre, in Trinity College, on September 17, 2007, 2:00 to 3:00
p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
