I spent the last two days at the Canadian Institute “Managing Your Privacy Obligations” conference.
It was a very informative conference. with advanced content and discussion led by a faculty of many I admire. It was also a pleasure to finally meet and speak with fellow privacy law bloggers and contemporaries David Fraser and Brian Bowman. I took notes live on Twitter in a stream posted here. (Read from the bottom up.)
My own presentation was on the law of records retention and destruction. I used it as an opportunity to go a little beyond privacy and walk through all the legal and practical underpinnings of a retention rule. Here are my slides:
I’ll also offer a link to my paper, which I’d still characterize as a work in progress. If you have any comments or thoughts, please feel free to post them here or e-mail.
Thanks to the the Canadian Institute, conference organizer Sandra Bernstein and co-chairs David Fraser and Amanda Maltby. I was very pleased to be involved.
