Security Newsletter, March edition – Q&A with the Commissioner, IDM goes Underground

The March edition of the Security Inside Out Newsletter is now out. This edition puts a spotlight on Privacy and features a Q&A session with a well known privacy expert, and showcases relevant resources.

With businesses relying more than ever on online channels to manage, build and grow their customer interactions, issues around security, privacy and compliance have taken center stage more so than ever before. Last week, we talked about the role security plays in enabling the new digital experience and in connecting organizations to social, mobile and cloud. This week we will talk about Privacy.

Dr. Ann Cavoukian is Ontario’s Commissioner of Information and Privacy and one of the world’s leading experts on Privacy. The March edition of the newsletter features a Q&A with the Commissioner where she delved into the role technology can play in protecting and managing privacy, and discussed her mantra Privacy by Design. We encourage you to read the feature and download the whitepaper that discusses Privacy and Security by Design: A Convergence of Paradigms. The feature serves as good background for a conversation on Privacy that we will have on our blog this week leading up to the twitter conversation with the Commissioner next week (on April 4th).

Yes, a twitter conversation! The Commissioner has agreed to participate in a live twitter chat to discuss Privacy and respond to industry questions - recent news, private sector responsibility, the work required, industry standards, the importance of Privacy by Design, and much more. The live conversation will take place on twitter on Thursday, April 4th at 10 am PDT / 1 pm EDT. Please participate using #PrivQA. And if you have questions, comments or feedback for the Commissioner you can send those before or during the event using #PrivQA. Questions before the event can be sent to @OracleIDM using #PrivQA.

The newsletter also showcases Virgin Media’s implementation of Identity Management to enable secure wi-fi services in the London Underground. The project started just before the London Olympics 2012, realized a tremendous success and has evolved in scope since. Do read the interesting feature and register for an upcoming webcast with Virgin Media this Thursday, March 28 at 10 am PDT. Since Virgin Media, Oracle and implementation experts from aurionPro SENA will all be at hand to answer questions, be sure to stay on for the live Q&A bit towards the end.

And, as always, the newsletter captures both recent and upcoming Security and Identity Management events, conferences, training, industry reports, news and more. So, if you haven’t done so, we recommend you subscribe to the Security Inside Out Newsletter today.
