“The Council of Chief Privacy Officers is an excellent forum for keeping abreast of changes in the world of privacy and sourcing best practice tips from a group of peers.”

—HSBC Bank Canada

“Like many compliance professionals, I have limited resources to steer into conferences and training. Therefore, I was initially hesitant about joining the Council of Chief Privacy Officers. However, I have found that I derive great value from my membership. Council meetings always involve high level presenters who are experts in their fields and engaged privacy colleagues battling the challenges similar to those I face in my organization. I walk away from each meeting with new ideas I can immediately implement to strengthen my organization’s privacy compliance program. I had attended numerous privacy conferences prior to joining the Council. Now I am considering whether there is any need for me to attend privacy conferences organized by other organizations.”

—Canadian Western Bank
