Data Privacy Day, January 26, 2011 was once again a huge success as Dalhousie University was host to 200+ participants representing local business, government, students and other members of the Dalhousie community – doubling the attendance from last year.
Hightlighted speakers IronPort/Cisco’s Henry Stern, a Dalhousie Computer Science alumnus, involved in the anti-spam community since 2003; David Fraser, also a Dal alumnus & associate professor, one of Canada’s leading privacy law experts; Robert Ellis Smith, a key figure in the global privacy community and author/publisher of the Privacy Journal; Bob Doherty, local privacy consultant; and our own Ryan McNutt (Communications & Marketing), involved in social media strategies all gave excellent presentations on data privacy and protection.
The event receiving media attention from Global National and a spot on “Live at 5”, highlights the public’s interest in the protection and security of their personal data.
