University of Ottawa Pathways to Privacy Research Symposium

I am delighted to be delivering a keynote (at 4h10min) on the topic of “Are Privacy Laws Adequately Protecting and Servicing Privacy?” at the Pathways to Privacy Research Symposium. This initiative was established by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) to increase awareness of the outcomes of privacy research and knowledge translation projects in Canada.

The initiative encourages and supports the creation of symposium events that showcase projects funded by the OPC’s Contributions Program and other relevant funders. The events are designed to facilitate a dialogue between the people who do privacy research and those who apply it, so that more people can use and benefit from this work. They also provide stakeholders with an interest in privacy promotion and protection with the opportunity to network and build partnerships.

It is designed to generate privacy awareness and discussion by bringing together a wide variety of potential end-users, including academia, government, private sector, parliamentarians, non-profit organizations and privacy regulators.

The 2015 Symposium will take place on Thursday, February 26th, 2015 at University of Ottawa, in Tabaret Hall.
