This congress is an opportunity to learn about the most recent issues concerning your privacy rights, access-to-information, and data governance. Selected topics will examine such things as Privacy & Big Data, Surveillance in a Democracy, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Autonomous Vehicles: Data Heaven or Data Hell, and What’s Driving DNA Discovery.

Among the speakers is keynote Edwin Black.

He is the New York Times bestselling international investigative author with more than 1.4 million books in print in 14 languages in 65 countries, as well as scores of award winning newspaper and magazine articles in the leading publications of the United States, Europe and Israel. His work focuses on human rights, genocide and hate, corporate criminality and corruption, governmental misconduct, academic fraud, philanthropic abuse, oil addiction, alternative energy and historical investigation.

Editors have submitted Black’s work eleven times for Pulitzer Prize nomination, and, in recent years, he has been the recipient of a series of top editorial awards. In April 2015, Black testified before the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance as it studied of the cost, economic impact, frequency and best practices to address the issue of terrorist financing both in Canada and abroad.
