Stoddart Looks to Privacy Enforcement
PRIVACY—CANADAJanuary 26, 2011
The Ottawa Citizen reports on Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart's first public lecture of 2011, where she "put the Canadian privacy and business communities on notice that she intends to use her new mandate to reshape the enforcement side of Canadian privacy law." During her talk at the University of Ottawa, Stoddart spoke of strategies to move organizations into better privacy compliance practices. Stoddart said enforcement reform is likely to focus on such factors as penalties for violations and empowering the Office of the Privacy Commissioner to "name organizations that violate the law," the report states.
