Government and Big Data: Privacy Risks and Solutions
Privacy Day Event – January 26, 2017
9 – 11:30 a.m.
Big data is changing the landscape of how Ontario institutions develop public policy and design government programs. Our governments are collecting more data than ever before and are taking advantage of powerful computing and analytical models. Many believe that big data analytics support evidence-based decision making and fuel innovation by enabling public policy makers to gain insights from data faster and in previously unimagined ways, including predicting human behaviour.
How can we ensure that the privacy rights of Ontarians are respected and personal information is managed appropriately and fairly in a big data world? How do we ensure transparency and that results and findings are accurate and non-discriminatory? How can we protect an individual’s right to challenge findings that are based on these powerful analytical tools?
Key issues to be discussed include:
This event will feature a presentation by Brian Beamish, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, followed by a panel discussion among experts in the field of big data and privacy.
Special guest panelists include:
The panel will be moderated by Assistant Commissioner, David Goodis.
