PRIVACY = Freedom & Liberty | Ann Cavoukian | TEDxVaughanWomen

Privacy is NOT about having something to hide, Privacy is Freedom.

Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognized as one of the world’s leading privacy experts. Her Privacy by Design framework seeks to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technologies and business practices, thereby achieving the strongest protection possible. In October 2010, regulators at the conference of International Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners in Jerusalem unanimously passed a Resolution recognizing Privacy by Design as an essential component of fundamental privacy protection. This was followed by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s inclusion of Privacy by Design as one of three recommended practices for protecting online privacy – a major validation of its significance.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
