This is a pitch for the OBA Privacy Law section’s “What every lawyer needs to know about privacy” session. It’s at the Metro Convention Centre on February 2nd from 1:15 pm to 4:30 pm. Details here.
There’s a good line up, with a year-in-review talk along with sessions on the new telemarketing regulation and privacy and litigation (a favorite topic of mine).
I’ll be speaking with Professor Avner Levin on workplace privacy in a discussion moderated by Howard Simkevitz. We’ve been planning the discussion for the last couple of days and have decided to spend a good deal of it on the workplace privacy issues related to Web 2.0. Dr. Levin and other members of the Ryerson University Privacy and Cyber Crime Institute at the Ted Rogers School of Management have recently published a leading study on the perceptions of risk of young Canadians engaged in online socializing and how their behaviors meet with the use of online social networks by business for commercial and human resources purposes. The study is entitled The Next Digital Divide: Online Social Network Privacy and has attracted significant attention. We plan to hit on the major legal and policy issues relating to the workplace that flow from the study as well as touch on the key other “need to knows” about workplace privacy.
We’d love to see you there!
