Access my Info presented at Canadian Sunshine Summit

Sunshine Summit

On September 22 2014, Andrew Hilts presented at the Privacy and Access Council of Canada’s annual Sunshine Summit held in Toronto. The event brought together the region’s privacy and access professionals in an intimate setting with lively discussion and shared experiences.

There, he spoke about the background of the Access my Info tool, stemming from concerns about the lack of transparency by which Canadian telecommunications retain data and disclose it to government agencies. Hilts then described the tool’s design and the initial responses people received to their requests from telecoms.
