Privacy Breach Response and Reporting Workshop

Presented by Nji Lionel Nji, Senior Information, Security and Privacy Manager

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

It’s not a matter of if you will have a privacy breach, it’s when. Organizational preparedness is the key to successful privacy breach response. This workshop provides comments on trends in the type and magnitude of breaches reported to the OIPC. The session gives participants practical guidance from a regulator’s perspective, based on successful - and unsuccessful - strategies organizations have used to respond to breaches.  Discussion will include the following:

  • Developing a privacy breach response plan
  • Establishing your breach response team
  • Successful strategies in remediating privacy breaches
  • Issues around identifying affected individuals and notification challenges

Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) Training

Presented by Chris Stinner, Senior Information and Privacy Manager

Time: 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This training session assists stakeholders in reviewing the impact that a new project may have on individual privacy, and covers the essentials of a PIA.
