TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Ongoing technological advances enable
organizations to amass detailed records of our behaviour, activities
and interests says Ontario's Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr.
Ann Cavoukian. At issue, says the Commissioner, is how organizations
bring business practices into alignment with consumer expectations and
provide assurances that their personal information is being protected.
The ability to meet legitimate business goals and protect privacy will be demonstrated at the Commissioner's third annual
Privacy by Design Challenge event - Privacy by Design: Time to Take Control - at the Toronto Board of Trade on January 28, International Privacy Day.
An international roster of business and privacy leaders has taken up Dr.
Cavoukian's challenge to share their experiences on applying Privacy by Design, the made-in-Ontario framework for embedding privacy into the
architecture of technologies and business processes, right from the
outset. Privacy by Design gained widespread international acclaim in 2010, including its adoption
by the International Data and Privacy Commissioners at their annual
meeting, as well as support from the European Commission and the U.S.
Federal Trade Commission.
As well as presentations, there will be a demonstration area at the
event, where you can learn about a variety of new privacy-enhancing
technologies and services, including many from local businesses.
This morning conference starts with breakfast and registration from 7:30
to 8:30 a.m., followed by the program from 8:30 to 11.30 a.m. More
information, including registration details, is available at www.privacybydesign.ca./events.
