Next steps for freedom of information and privacy

The pace of change in both the freedom of information and privacy spheres keeps picking up, and won’t be slowing any time soon.

A lot has happened since our last Information Summit, including:

Information Summit 2014 features a roster of experts and people intimately involved in how the world of information is changing. It will also help to map out where we can expect to be in the not too distant future.

Will Open Data achieve its promise? Can we find the efficiencies in government operations promised by new technology while still protecting privacy? What can be done to ensure that citizens are able to get vital information from government and other public bodies?

This year’s Information Summit will provide a unique opportunity to have this discussion with those who have been tackling these challenges head-on. We’ll hear about what works, what to avoid, and what practical steps can be taken in this current climate to promote access, and protect privacy.

You won’t want to miss this vital and engaging discussion.

The 2014 BC Information Summit has been accredited as a ContinuingĀ ProfessionalĀ Development course by the Law Society of British Columbia.
