Privacy and anti-spam 101: Addressing risks and maintaining compliance

Mar 21, 2017

Emerging companies face a range of privacy and anti-spam issues that can arise at various stages of the business life cycle. Issues can come up during the due diligence and financing phase or even at a later stage when the company is being bought and it may be too late to address the risks.

In this presentation, available in both webinar and PowerPoint format, John Salloum, a partner in Osler’s Privacy and Data Management Group, provides you with information you can use to help identify and address privacy and anti-spam issues and associated risks as they occur. Topics covered include the following:

  • drivers behind privacy compliance
  • sources of privacy obligations (including privacy legislation, common law and privacy regulatory authorities)
  • definition of personal information
  • addressing privacy in the online/mobile context
  • social media
  • online behavioural advertising and guidelines of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada
  • Canada's anti-spam legislation (CASL)
