The Need to Embed Big Privacy in a World of Big Data by Design

The Trent IT Department extends an invitation to all students, staff and faculty to attend a presentation entitled, “The Need to Embed Big Privacy in a World of Big Data – by Design” in The Great Hall at Champlain College.  

Our guest is one of the world’s leading privacy experts, Dr. Ann Cavoukian. Dr. Cavoukian served an unprecedented three terms as Privacy Commissioner for the province of Ontario. There she created Privacy by Design, a framework that seeks to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technologies, networked infrastructure and business practices. This talk is particularly timely and critical. In her leadership of the Privacy and Big Data Institute at Ryerson University Dr. Cavoukian is dedicated to demonstrating that Privacy can and must be included, side by side, with other functionalities such as security and business interests. Her mantra of “banish zero-sum” enables multiple interests to be served simultaneously – not one to the exclusion of the others.  

Members of the public are welcome to attend. Non-Trent Attendees: Please contact Tanna Edwards ( or 705-748-1011 x 6277 to reserve your spot.
