Privacy at the Border: Fact or Fable


On Thursday, April 6, Kristal Allen will speak at the National Privacy & Data Governance Congress in Calgary on the topic of “Privacy at the Border.”

Privacy at the Border: Fact or Fable
Technology has shrunk our world, and it is now commonplace to cross borders just to attend a meeting or event. Our information crosses international borders even more frequently.

What happens to privacy when we travel with a smart phone, tablet or laptop? Do we have to give up device passwords? Is our camera subject to scrutiny? What can happen if we refuse? And what about meeting our obligations to safeguard personal privacy, protect lawyer/client privilege and maintain doctor/patient confidentiality when border authorities scour our devices?

This important session will include practical guidance about what participants can expect when they leave and enter Canada when it comes to information they might be carrying on their smart phones or other devices.
