Technological and societal changes have meant a number of countries have brought in new laws to protect their citizens' personal information. How do these new laws affect your business? What is the status of privacy law in Canada and how might it affect your business?
Join us on December 11, 2019 for guest speaker, Max Jarvie from BLG as he covers the trends that may be relevant for Canadian businesses that are in the process of benchmarking or updating their privacy governance framework. Topics discussed will include the role of the board of directors in privacy governance, the types of issues that are reported to the board, the privacy role and responsibilities within businesses, the management of third-party vendors, and the types of individual requests that organizations receive.
Max Jarvie is an associate in the Privacy and Data Protection practice group at BLG LLP. He advises and assists clients on a wide range of issues, including privacy and data protection matters, information security, technology licensing, consumer protection, distributed ledger technology, and corporate commercial matters.
Before studying law, Max worked in information technology as a project manager and departmental director at several private companies and public institutions, and completed a Ph.D in philosophy at McGill University.
During his legal studies, Max worked as an editor for both the McGill Law Journal and the McGill Journal of Law and Health, and edited and published the 8th edition of the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation. He has served as a law clerk for the Honourable Nicholas Kasirer at the Court of Appeal for Quebec, and for Justice Hanan Melcer at the Supreme Court of Israel.
Max speaks frequently on the legal implications of technology, including distributed ledger technology, IoT and smart cities, and artificial intelligence, and has taught a course module on the tax implications of cryptocurrencies at McGill University’s Faculty of Law. Max is also the author of several publications, most recently a scholarly article examining the effects of intellectual property law on food security and a book chapter contributed to Eloïse Gratton's and Elisa Henry's Practical Guide to E-Commerce and Internet Law.
