Cyber Summit 2016: Using Technology Responsibly

Date:

Thursday, October 27, 2016 - 7:00 MDT to Friday, October 28, 2016 - 7:00 MDT

Description

If information is power, how can we ensure that society is using it in the most accountable way possible? This October, Cybera is partnering with MRnet and SRnet to present Cyber Summit 2016, a two day summit that will focus on the privacy / policy implications of technologies related to open, big data and the Internet of Things. It will help public organizations, tech leaders, and everyday citizens understand what is fully at stake when information (both public and private) is made available online, and what legal defenses may (or may not) exist to protect them.

The Summit will take place October 27-28, 2016 at The Banff Centre in Banff, AB, with pre-conference workshops being held on October 26.

Keynote presentations will be delivered by Jill Clayton, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta, and Dr. Michael Geist, law professor at the University of Ottawa and syndicated columnist on technology law issues.

Audience members will include the greatest technology minds in the west. This event will benefit everyone on the operations team — from CIOs and systems administrators, to business development and policy officers.
