TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Ontario's Information and Privacy
Commissioner Ann Cavoukian spoke with security expert Claudiu Popa

In the first of a series of exclusive interviews, Dr. Cavoukian
addresses her advice at young Canadians. In the new 'back to school'
video, the Commissioner provides clear and concise advice to stay safe:

victimization, be careful what you post and limit access to the social
media data, because once online, you can no longer control it.
Informatica CEO and KnowledgeFlow founder Claudiu Popa said: "the

important questions has set the stage for the Insights series of
interviews. We hope this knowledge has a broad positive impact on
The video is now available at: http://www.knowledgeflow.ca/hot-right-now.html as well as the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner's

parents and teachers, will be available in the weeks to come.
