Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognised as one of the world’s leading privacy experts. Dr. Cavoukian served an unprecedented three terms as the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada.

There she created Privacy by Design, a framework that seeks to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technologies, networked infrastructure and business practices, thereby achieving the strongest protection possible. In 2010, International Privacy Regulators unanimously passed a Resolution recognizing Privacy by Design as an International Standard.

Since then, PbD has been translated into 40 languages! In 2018, PbD was included in a sweeping new law in the EU: the General Data Protection Regulation. In this session we hear from Dr Ann Cavoukian who is now Executive Director of Global Privacy & Security by Design Centre, about her career and her journey to becoming one of the most recognized world’s leading privacy experts.
