2014 International Privacy Day: Big Surveillance Demands Big Privacy – Enter Privacy-Protective Surveillance

2014 International Privacy Day: Big Surveillance Demands Big Privacy – Enter Privacy-Protective Surveillance

When:
January 28, 2014 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am
Where:
MaRS Discovery District
101 College Street
Toronto, ON M5G 1L7
Canada

Surveillance by the state is a global issue, with personal information being shared across jurisdictions, at times in a manner that contravenes the most basic principles of privacy and freedom. Canadians can no longer be complacent and merely criticize the United States for allowing the NSA so much unsupervised power. We know startlingly little about what our own government is doing – and, potentially, what foreign intelligence agencies are doing – with our personal information. It is disturbing that there has been so little debate on this important issue, even in Parliament. It is time for citizens to speak out so that we can protect our freedom and take back our privacy. In a free and open society, we deserve no less. Transparency, oversight, accountability – we deserve no less.

Join Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, and highly esteemed guests as they address important issues on International Privacy Day.  More information is available here.
