Devin Wehrle and Kristél Kriel Speak at Manitoba Connections Conference

On Tuesday, September 24, lawyers Devin Wehrle and Kristél Kriel will present on “Access/Disclosing Information to CCTV Surveillance Cameras” at the 2019 Manitoba Connections Conference taking place in Winnipeg.

Devin and Kristél’s presentation will discuss the privacy considerations relating to the use of CCTV. The session examines the issue from an employment perspective in an effort to see what can be learned from those situations in order to better manage the use of CCTV in public and publicly funded spaces, especially in areas of high sensitivity such as schools and healthcare.

This conference, hosted by the Public Service Information Community Connection (PSICC), runs from September 23-24 and offers a series of in-depth workshops tailored to help public sector employees strengthen their skills in the areas of information access, privacy, security and information management. The discussions will address the emerging issues and trends and provide practical solutions to help professionals meet information challenges within the interconnected disciplines.
