CIO Strategy Council Leads Development of National Standards for Privacy Compliance and Access Control Professionals

TORONTO, October 14, 2020  Mounting calls for an overhaul to privacy and data protection regimes around the world have some countries enacting a new set of online rights for citizens, while others are embarking on needed changes.  

With increasing regulatory complexities as well as increasing stakeholder and public expectations, there are continuously growing demands put upon access and privacy practitioners and how organizations are not only addressing privacy rules in changing regulatory environments, but more broadly the public responsibility for data. 

In response, the CIO Strategy Council established a new technical committee on privacy to develop national standards for privacy compliance across jurisdictions and for the qualification and proficiency of privacy and access control professionals. 

All interested parties are invited to join and contribute to the technical committee responsible for the development of these national standards. For more information or any questions about the Council’s standards development activities, please contact Matthew MacNeil.
