International Update +

Our annual international update is a must-attend event. The panel provides critical guidance to Canadian organizations operating internationally. This year, the panel will cover Europe, the United States and Asia. Canada’s Bill C-27 drew inspiration from developments in Europe and Singapore’s handling of legitimate business interests, and Canada’s proximity to the United States means that privacy compliance programs must often interoperate with our biggest trading partner. Be sure to catch this session to stay up-to-date on international developments.

Access to Information: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know +

Access to Information isn’t only a public sector issue. Private sector organizations are often in public-private partnerships or service provider relationships with public sector entities. Access to information laws may be used to understand responses to government consultations to inform journalists, lobbyists and civil society. Competitors may seek access to commercial agreements for business intelligence. Individuals may seek information as a prelude to asserting legal rights. Our moderator and speakers will review topical issues that every lawyer needs to know. Whether you are a seasoned access to information lawyer or just starting out, this session will provide a timely update on key issues and trends.

David Goodis, INQ Law

In both the public and private sector, privacy assessments of some sort are taking on an increasing importance and morphing to cover more and more, from data analytics and bias to cross border transfers and legal framework assessments. This session will start by outlining the current and emerging legislative requirements and regulatory expectations for conducting privacy assessments in the public and private sector. Then it will explore experience conducting and reviewing PIAs, and consider very practical approaches to privacy assessments and the positive impact they can have on enabling data processing while mitigating privacy risk.
