Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, stepping down

Yesterday, Ryerson University announced that Dr. Cavoukian would be stepping down as Ontario's Information and Privacy Commissioner and take the position of Executive Director of the Ryerson University Institute for Privacy and Big Data.

Over the last 15 years as commissioner, Dr. Cavoukian has been at the forefront of reconciling the right to privacy with and increasingly networked and digital world.  She has been the chief promoter of the concept of Privacy by Design, "an approach to protecting privacy by embedding it into the design specifications of technologies, business practices, and physical infrastructures."

I look forward to more great work form Dr. Cavoukian in the future.
