This lecture will bridge the sphere of privacy advocacy and its practical 
implementation in a networked, global and corporate world. Stephanie 
Perrin, Chief Privacy Officer of Zero-Knowledge Systems, will discuss the 
fundamental threat to privacy in a world that has said ‘yes’ to 
surveillance. She will then  provide the audience with a first hand account 
of the pragmatics of being a CPO, and will discuss some of the problems 
CPOs face daily. Stephanie will finalize by describing her work on 
international standards, and the common privacy problems that are being 
felt worldwide.


Formerly the Director of Privacy Policy for Industry Canada's Electronic 
Commerce Task Force, Stephanie Perrin manages Zero-Knowledge's public 
affairs activities and acts as the company's primary liaison to government 
and non-governmental organizations.

An internationally recognized expert in freedom of information and privacy 
issues, Stephanie was instrumental in developing Canada's privacy and 
cryptography policies for over fifteen years. For the past five years she 
led the legislative initiative at Industry Canada that resulted in the 
Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, the 
electronic commerce privacy legislation that received Royal Assent on April 
13, 2000. She represented Canada internationally at the OECD Security and 
Privacy Committee and was responsible for developing domestic privacy 
policies in the context of new technologies, legislation, standards and 
public education.
