When it comes to privacy, Ann Cavoukian is a legend. She created Privacy by Design during her tenure as Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, which landed her in the upper echelon of cybersecurity peeps.
It’s no exaggeration to say that Ann Cavoukian defined online privacy as we think about it today. In just three days, she drafted Privacy by Design, a blueprint for consumer protection that has gone on to influence and be adopted by companies and governments worldwide.
