Over the course of the year, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada is hosting consultations with Canadians on issues that pose a serious challenge to privacy. In an attempt to learn more about the privacy implications of new industries, the focus of the consultations has been on online tracking, profiling and targeting of consumers, and the increasing prevalence of cloud computing.
Following the first such consultation in Toronto, a second event was held in Montreal on May 19th, 2010. The event was a resounding success, due in part to the fact that the panels had a lively audience both on and offline.
Did you miss the event? You can still watch the webcast here, and you can check out what was happening on Twitter for each panel below.
Panel 1: Frontiers of Consumer Information Datamining and Analytics
Panel 2: Online Identity and Reputation
Panel 3: Online marketing methods: gaming, advertising, applications and social networks
