Big Data Processing & PIPEDA’s Consent Requirements

The Information Accountability Foundation and Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP will host a dialogue on “Reconciling Big Data Processing with PIPEDA’s Consent Requirements.”

Canada’s private sector privacy laws sit on the twin pillars of consent and accountability. In this workshop session, we will discuss a framework to make big data processing possible when consent is not a fully effective governance mechanism. The Information Accountability Foundation has been exploring means for establishing the legitimacy of big data processing in numerous countries and brings that knowledge to the specific issues that exist under Canadian law and practice.

The event will take place at Osler’s Toronto offices on April 2, 2015, from 10 am – 3 pm , ET. The event is being sponsored by Symcor Inc.
