As the world celebrates Data Privacy Day, the IEEE is hosting a “Privacy for the People” Google Hangout On Air to explore and discuss collaboration in harnessing global creativity and expertise for privacy innovation and technology solutions and to help advance cybersecurity.

Join our renowned panelists in a live discussion to explore what the next era of privacy might look like in a world of increasingly smart devices and ever-more expansive forms of data collection and how bottom up, open collaboration can be used to harness global creativity and expertise for privacy innovation, best practices and solutions.

Led by the National Cyber Security Alliance, a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated cybersecurity education and awareness, Data Privacy Day is an effort to empower and educate people to protect their privacy, manage their digital footprint and make the protection of privacy and data a priority in their lives. Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the 28 January 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Data Privacy Day is now a celebration for everyone, observed annually on January 28.


Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognized as one of the top privacy experts in the world. An avowed believer in the role that technology can play in protecting privacy, Ann’s leadership has seen her office develop a number of tools and procedures to ensure privacy is protected in Ontario – and around the globe. Ann is Ontario’s first Information and Privacy Commissioner to be reappointed for a second term. Initially appointed in 1997, her role in overseeing the operations of the freedom of information and privacy laws in Canada’s most populous province was extended to 2009. Like the provincial auditor, she serves as an officer of the legislature, independent of the government of the day. Businesses across North America and Europe regularly seek Ann’s advice and guidance on privacy and data protection issues. She has been involved in a number of international committees focused on privacy, technology and business. Her groundbreaking 1995 paper on advancing privacy protection through the pursuit of privacy-enhancing technologies or PETs is now part of the industry lexicon.
