CodeX Speaker Series: "Privacy By Design" with Ann Cavoukian, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario
March 24, 2010 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ph.D., is Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada. She is recognized as one of the leading privacy experts in the world. Noted for her seminal work on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) in 1995, her concept of Privacy by Design seeks to embed privacy into the design specifications of technology, thereby achieving the strongest protection. An avowed believer in the role that technology can play in protecting privacy, Dr. Cavoukian’s leadership has seen her office develop a number of tools and procedures to ensure that privacy is strongly protected, not only in Canada, but around the world. She has been involved in a number of international committees focused on privacy, security, technology and business, and endeavours to focus on strengthening trust and confidence in emerging technological applications. Dr. Cavoukian also serves as the Chair of the Identity, Privacy and Security Institute at the University of Toronto, Canada and is a member of the Future of Privacy Advisory Board. Reappointed as Commissioner for an unprecedented third term, Dr. Cavoukian intends to grow Privacy by Design and hopes to make it go “viral.”
