The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) is holding the first armchair discussion in its Insights on Privacy Speakers’ Series. Our first event will take place on Friday, December 10th with Chris Soghoian and Jesse Hirsh. Chris and Jesse will report from the frontiers of the privacy landscape and give their thought-provoking insights into what the future of privacy might look like. Known as stimulating speakers, Chris and Jesse will no doubt push some boundaries and engage the audience on their assumptions and understanding of privacy, identity and reputation online.
Chris Soghoian (dubfire.net, @csoghoian on Twitter) is a Ph.D. Candidate in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University. His research interests include data security and privacy, cyber law, policy as well as phishing and other forms of applied deception. He has consulted for, worked at or interned with the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), Google, Apple and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Jesse Hirsh (jessehirsh.com, @jessehirsh on Twitter) is an internet strategist, researcher, and broadcaster based in Toronto, Canada. He has a weekly nationally syndicated column on CBC radio explaining and analyzing the latest trends and developments in technology using language and examples that are meaningful and relevant to everyday life.
The Insights on Privacy Speakers’ Series is a series of armchair discussions hosted by the OPC to shed light on new and provocative voices doing interesting work in the field of privacy. Drawing from a variety of fields and disciplines, we hope to bring new perspective to privacy research, both within the OPC and outside of our office.
Space is limited and is available on a first come first served basis. Please RSVP before December 6th. Simultaneous interpretation for both official languages will be available.
When: 3:00-4:30 p.m. Friday, December 10, 2010
