As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, data protection and privacy issues continue to create an increasing number of business, legal and reputational risks. From smart technologies and artificial intelligence to issues around global compliance, digital consent and online reputations, organizations will need to understand the legal frameworks and best practices to navigate these issues and remain secure.
Please join us a number of presentations in November that will bring together leaders and experts in a variety of fields who will share their knowledge and insights on how to best manage privacy in an increasingly connected world.

Connected and Smart Devices – November 25
Presented by Ira Parghi and George Wray
People and objects are connected in ever increasing ways. More and more, our devices collect, store, process, and disseminate data. While this undoubtedly makes our lives easier and more efficient, it also creates information privacy and security risks. Learn about some of these challenges, and about efforts by government regulators and industry to manage them. Examples will be considered from the automotive and medical device industries in Canada and beyond.
