Shifting Expectations: A Reflection on Canada’s Current Regulatory Landscape and Where it May Go

Privacy leaders in the European Union have spent years preparing their organizations for the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Effective May 25, 2018, Canadian businesses must comply with the new regulations to do business with EU companies.

Whether or not your organization is impacted by the new regulation, the GDPR has set the new gold-standard for data privacy – one worth understanding as the world of data protection continues to evolve and the consequences for non-compliance are heightened.

This four-part webinar series will uncover the key questions and considerations for Canadian businesses as it relates to the impact and adaption of GDPR in Canada. These discussions will look beyond current GDPR standards to examine the future of privacy legislation and how organizations can equip themselves to adhere to a higher standard of data use and protection.

This webinar is the fourth in a series of 4. The previous 3 webinars were GDPR 101: A Toolkit to Educate Non-Privacy Professionals and Operationalizing GDPR within your Organization and Tips for an Effective GDPR Governance Structure and Model.

Blockchain Enters The Boardroom How Decentralized Applications Will Shake Up The C-Suite

A recent article on Forbes called 2019 ‘the year of enterprise blockchain.’ Yet a study from consulting firm Deloitte showed 39 per cent of executives felt the technology has been overhyped.

This debate hasn’t stopped companies like Mercedes-Benz to JP Moran from investing heavily in their own blockchain projects, and more are to come. Even if some companies don’t pursue the technology today, they may soon be surrounded by other organizations who offer blockchain-based products and services that will have an impact across many common business functions.

This April 15-16, the Conference Board of Canada will continue to lead a national conversation on these issues with Blockchain Summit 2019: The Strategic Roadmap For Canadian Business Leaders

Building Cyber Resilience Webinar

Organizations need to face the virtual inevitability of being impacted by cyber incidents, intrusions, and attacks of some kind. In addition to having a strong cyber security posture, building cyber resilience is critical to mitigating cyber attacks in a rapidly evolving environment. Unlike cyber security, which is usually very focused on protection, cyber resilience recognizes the inevitability of a successful cyber attack and the need for businesses to limit their impacts, maintain critical functions, and quickly return to normal following an incident.
