BC AWARE EVENT: IIA Adopting a Privacy Program: Practical Advice to Achieve Compliance

In a hyper connected world where data insight gives organizations a competitive edge, the risks of managing and safeguarding that data - specifically personal data - have increased exponentially. How then, as business professionals, can we influence the importance of privacy and security management while at the same time we become enablers of innovative business models? During this session we will discuss the importance of a Privacy Management Program that ensures that the business achieves its goals while at the same time complies with regulatory and commercial expectations regarding the control and protection of personal data. From understanding what personal data is needed to provide superior products and services to assessing the risks to individuals and the organization to responding to data breaches if they happen, it is important to adopt a program that will guide strategic decisions and will help manage risks.

Cyber Security | Challenge | Sécurité Informatique

Surrey area college and university undergraduate students will compete in a realistic cyber breach simulation – hands-on participation and analysis – and some students may receive intern positions with local IT Security companies.

Summary of Event Day:

The event day, January 25, includes Hacking in the morning, job interviews in the afternoon, and (usually) verbal offers for intern/co-op positions by end of day. 

  • Sponsors' technical managers or team-leads  should participate all day Saturday. 

  • The morning is a time to circulate and mentor students.  (We will give you instructions and answer sheets.)  It's really part of the interview process. 

  • The afternoon is for student interviews.

  • HR folks may be interested in observing in the morning.  Optional.

  • Most companies will have HR present for the afternoon interviews. 

  • Sponsor PR/Communications staff can attend any time if they want to take photos, video, or connect through social media with tweets or posts during the event.

  • The top-12 students from the morning competition will all be guaranteed a place in the interviews.  As well, the sponsors might "invite" 1 or 2 stronger students from the weaker teams to join the afternoon process.
