In announcing the launch of the weeklong initiative, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada said participating authorities will dedicate individuals to search the Internet in a coordinated effort to assess privacy issues related to the theme, Privacy Practice Transparency. “Privacy issues have become global and they require a global response,” noted Canadian Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart. “It is critical that privacy enforcement authorities work together to help protect the privacy rights of people around the world.” This exclusive for The Privacy Advisor takes a closer look at the new initiative.
