Information Technology

Dr. Ann Cavoukian to Speak at Trent University

Dear Community Member,

The Trent University Information Technology Department extends an invitation to all community members to attend a presentation entitled, "The Need to Embed Big Privacy in a World of Big Data – by Design" on Monday, September 28, 2015 from 11 A.M to noon in The Great Hall at Champlain College (1770 West Bank Drive, Peterborough, ON).

Our guest will be one of the world’s leading privacy experts, Dr. Ann Cavoukian. Dr. Cavoukian served an unprecedented three terms as Privacy Commissioner for the province of Ontario. There she created Privacy by Design, a framework that seeks to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technologies, networked infrastructure and business practices. 

This talk is particularly timely and critical. In her leadership of the Privacy and Big Data Institute at Ryerson University, Dr. Cavoukian is dedicated to demonstrating that Privacy can and must be included, side by side, with other functionalities such as security and business interests. Her mantra of “banish zero-sum” enables multiple interests to be served simultaneously – not one to the exclusion of the others.

We hope to see you there.
