Agenda and Speakers

Connecting the Dots: Demystifying the Application of Canadian Privacy Laws to Foreign Organizations
Kristen Pennington, McMillan

Spoiler alert: organizations do not need a physical presence in Canada to be subject to Canadian privacy laws – and, in some cases, more than one law! This session will explore when federal private sector privacy legislation, and substantially similar provincial legislation in Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec, can apply to foreign organizations, as well as some key implications of being subject to these laws.

Key Aspects of India’s New Data Privacy Law
Stephen Mathias, Kochhar & Co.

Join this session to learn about India’s new privacy law – which organizations may be subject to the law, what are some of the new obligations it will impose, and how can foreign entities prepare for its coming into force? Given the potentially steep penalties for non-compliance, this is an overview of new legal restrictions and requirements in India that you do not want to miss!
