The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada is launching a new speakers’ series titled Insights on Privacy. The first event, which will feature Chris Soghoian and Jesse Hirsh, will take place on Friday, December 10, 2010 at the Minto Suites Hotel in Ottawa.

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.

Space is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please RSVP before December 6th, 2010. Simultaneous interpretation for both official languages will be available.
