Due to the many massive privacy breaches in 2018 that affected millions of people around the world and the implementation of the European Union’s GDPR, awareness of information rights and protection under privacy law has grown significantly.

Marilyn Sing is the principal consultant of IPP Consulting, a Victoria-based company that focusses on helping private and public organizations meet their obligations to operate in compliance with applicable domestic and international privacy laws.


In this industry-focussed workshop, you will learn about the Canadian, BC and international privacy laws that impact your organization. From there, we will discuss the risks related to non-compliance and what regulators would look for if they were to investigate a privacy breach at your organization. The workshop will wrap up with some tips on what you can do to develop a privacy culture that protects your employees, clients and organization.

Did you know that when it comes to cybersecurity in the workplace, you are the weakest link? Because 1 in 5 serious security breaches is caused by uninformed employees, annual employee security training is now an integral part of any organization’s defense against cyber threats.

Ty has been on the front line of cybersecurity on Vancouver Island for the past nine years. In his position as vCIO, he helps business leaders navigate the many complexities of technology and develops IT roadmaps that reduce overall risk and improve productivity. One of his most important roles at Smart Dolphins is user education. Ty hosts monthly seminars where he educates both clients and members of the business community on safe computing.


Ty will outline the cyber threat landscape impacting Vancouver Island organizations today. You’ll learn four basic strategies for protecting your organization and he’ll share some “quick wins” that you can implement immediately. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask him questions, technical or otherwise.
