Based on her experience in assisting numerous businesses and industry associations, as well as her consulting and legal work with the Federal Privacy Commissioner's office, Fazila Nurani (, President and Founder of PrivaTech Consulting, will provide an overview of recent legal decisions that all businesses can learn from. Nurani will then lead participants through a detailed discussion of the key components for an effective privacy management program, including:
