Dr. Ann Cavoukian

Distinguished Expert-in-Residence - Privacy by Design Centre of Excellence, Ryerson University

Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognized as one of the world’s leading privacy experts. Dr. Cavoukian served an unprecedented three terms as the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada. There she created Privacy by Design, a framework that seeks to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technologies, networked infrastructure and business practices, thereby achieving the strongest protection possible. In 2010, International Privacy Regulators unanimously passed a Resolution recognizing Privacy by Design as an international standard. Since then, PbD has been translated into 40 languages.

In this virtual keynote, Dr. Cavoukian will explore:

  • Privacy by Design principles

  • How to implement PbD to meet GDPR and other compliance requirements

  • Cultivating strong data security measures in order to comply with the new wave of consumer privacy laws
