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.
IT endpoints are no longer just workstations and servers confined to corporate headquarters, branch offices, customer sites, and data centers, they can now be just about anything located anywhere, from employee homes to airports, hotels and in the cloud. But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
