Canadian Marketing Association Hosts Privacy Event

Learn about important developments from leading privacy experts
and find out how they will impact Canadian organizations

 

TORONTO, October 18, 2018 – Many important privacy developments have taken place in 2018. Major announcements called for amending Canada’s private-sector privacy law and developing a national data strategy. The EU’s new privacy law (GDPR) went into force, leaving many Canadian organizations concerned about its extra-territorial reach and hefty fines. Canada’s privacy regulator published guidelines on consent that describe important legal elements with which organizations are required to comply.

Media members are welcome to attend this CMA conference on October 25, 2018 from 9:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. to hear leading privacy experts discuss these major developments and assess how they will impact Canadian organizations. Interview opportunities are available upon request.
