Privacy by Design
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, January 26, 2012 TIME: 17:00 CET / 8:00am PT / 11:00am ET
2011 was, once again, a bad year for privacy as data breaches releasing usernames, passwords, credit card details and even medical records continued to make news right through the end of the year. Time has proven that no amount of imposed regulation can protect privacy in the face of a determined hacker. What’s needed is what’s called Privacy by Design. Join us in this webinar, where Senior Analyst Dave Kearns will discuss with Ontario´s Information and Privacy Commissioner Dr. Ann Cavoukian, who originally developed the privacy by design concept, and with McAfee Chief Frivacy Officer Michelle Dennedy on the growing importance of this concept.
Privacy by Design is a concept developed by Dr. Ann Cavoukian (now Information & Privacy Commissioner for Ontario, Canada) back in the 90’s, to address the ever-growing and systemic effects of Information and Communication Technologies, and of large-scale networked data systems. Privacy by Design advances the view that the future of privacy cannot be assured solely by compliance with regulatory frameworks; rather, privacy assurance must ideally become an organization’s default mode of operation.
We are honoured and proud that Dr. Ann Cavoukian followed Dave Kearns´ invitation to join him in this webinar, to discuss this topic which could become the biggest one in 2012 and beyond. Also joining the discussion will the iDennedy Project’s Michelle Dennedy, Chief Privacy Officer at McAfee.
In the modern world of flexible and remote working, it is useful for software engineers to be able to access and update source code from anywhere using any device, but the SolarWinds supply chain attack showed that it is essential to track every change for security and compliance reasons.
