Big Surveillance Demands Big Privacy – Enter Privacy-Protective Surveillance
MaRS Discovery District, 101 College Street, Toronto
Jan 28, 2014
Surveillance is a global issue, with personal information being shared across jurisdictions, at times in a manner that contravenes the most basic principles of privacy and freedom. Canadians can no longer be complacent and criticize the United States for allowing the NSA so much unsupervised power. We know startlingly little about what our government is doing – and, potentially, what foreign intelligence agencies are doing – with their personal information. It is disturbing that there has been so little debate on this important issue, even in Parliament. It is time for citizens to speak out so that we can protect our freedom and take back our privacy. In a free and open society, we deserve no less.
Join Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, and esteemed guests as they address these important issues on International Privacy Day from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Learn more at http://www.realprivacy.ca/index.php/international-privacy-day-symposium/

Spring Privacy Series: Mobile Device Tracking
FTC Conference Center, 601 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
Feb 19, 2014
Recently, retailers and other businesses have begun tracking consumers’ movements throughout and around retail stores and other attractions using technologies that identify signals emitted by their mobile devices. While the technologies differ, many work by identifying and collecting the MAC address – which is unique to a particular device – broadcast when a mobile device searches for Wi-Fi networks. Companies can use these technologies to reveal information about consumers including the path taken throughout a location, length of time in one location, whether a visitor is new or returning, and the frequency of visits to a location. According to media reports, major retailers in the United States are using or have tested the technology in their stores in order to gain insights into the behavior of their customers.
This free, public event will be held from 10am-12pm. Find more information at the Federal Trade Commission website.

Spring Privacy Series: Alternative Scoring Products
FTC Conference Center, 601 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
Mar 19, 2014
Many data brokers offer companies scores to predict trends and the behavior of their customers. Companies are using predictive scores for a variety of purposes, ranging from identity verification and fraud prevention to marketing and advertising. Consumers are largely unaware of these scores, and have little to no access to the underlying data that comprises the scores. As a result, these predictive scores raise a variety of potential privacy concerns and questions. The panel will address these concerns from 10am-12pm in a free, public event. For more information, visit the Federal Trade Commission website.
