Canadian Privacy Commissioner and Facebook to attend Ottawa Privacy Conference

Major players from both government and from industry will be attending the inaugural Privacy & Information Security Congress 2010 in Ottawa on November 15th and 16th.

The Congress, hosted by Reboot Communications, will provide a forum for delegates and sponsors with an interest in cutting edge policy, programs, research and technologies aimed at the protection of privacy and security.

While former U.S. presidential security advisor Fran Townsend will be headlining the conference, some attendees will be more interested in potential Facebook fireworks. Jennifer Stoddart, the privacy commissioner of Canada, will be in attendance along with Edward Palmieri of Facebook’s legal department. Read Stoddart’s recent review to understand what’s at stake.
