What a year it was for the IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium—the first-ever sold-out Symposium.
Delegates gathered in Toronto to explore privacy and e-health, developments in public-sector privacy, the real impacts of big data and so much more, and took advantage of the myriad networking opportunities, including the favorite Privacy Soirée.
This year’s Symposium keynotes delivered. Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart used her opening address to share recommendations for PIPEDA reform. And Commissioners Ann Cavoukian, Jill Clayton and Elizabeth Denham and the University of Ottawa’s Ian Kerr also set the bar high during the general sessions.
