  Opening Remarks: Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario IPC

Dr. Ann Cavoukian is Ontario's first Information and Privacy Commissioner (IPC) to be reappointed for a second term. Initially appointed in 1997, her role in overseeing the operations of the freedom of information and privacy laws in Canada’s most populous province was extended to 2009. Like the Auditor General, she serves as an officer of the legislature, independent of the government of the day.
Dr. Cavoukian joined the Office of the IPC in 1987, during its start-up phase, as its first Director of Compliance. In 1990, she was appointed Assistant Commissioner. Prior to joining the IPC, she headed the Research Services Branch for the provincial Attorney General. She received her M.A. and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Toronto, where she specialized in criminology and law, and lectured on psychology and the criminal justice system. 

The Trainer: Robert Johnson, NAID CEO

NAID founder and CEO Robert Johnson, widely regarded as one of the world’s leading authorities on information destruction policy, will provide all training.

Johnson has provided testimony and presentations on information disposal issues to policy makers across Canada, including the Privacy Commissioners Office, the Access to Information, and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario and Alberta’s PIPA review hearings.

In his current capacity, he also routinely works with policymakers at the international level as well, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Congressional Financial Services Committee in the US, and the British Standards Institute’s committee responsible for developing practices standards for information destruction firms in the U.K. Johnson sits on Information Asset Protection Council and the Information Protection Guidelines Committee of ASIS International.
