Training: McInnes Cooper privacy officer training program 

Privacy Officer Training:

Every organization that is affected by the new federal privacy law must appoint a privacy officer. It quickly became clear that there was no established training program to provide the skills necessary to carry out this important function, so Jackie Penney, Mike Deturbide and I designed a two-day intensive training program for privacy officers. It goes well beyond the introductory type of seminars that are common these days. We offered it in Halifax last October for about 25 attendees and it was very well received. We offered a custom version for a client in Newfoundland, which was also well received.

Based on the phone calls and inquiries since January 1, the need for this program appears to be as strong as ever. We will be offering the two-day program again in March in Halifax (March 3-4), Saint John (March 15-16)and St. John's (March 10-11).
