The Canadian Privacy Summit 2016 brought together key stakeholders from across Canada to discuss Canada’s top privacy challenges. Public and private sector leaders discussed the legislative environment for privacy and data, and other emerging privacy issues. Over the course of the two-day event, they explored how best to protect the personal privacy of individuals while encouraging organizations to use data to prosper and grow. Private and public sector summit participants agreed on the need to identify or create a meaningful, consent-based model of privacy for the digital age.
