Opening Keynote - Telling Your Data Story With the 3Vs: Vocabulary, Voice and Vision
Data Leaders must create a compelling narrative to evangelize their Information Governance programs and secure long-term support from enterprise stakeholders and business leadership.

Speaker: Scott Taylor, The Data Whisperer
Scott has helped countless companies by enlightening business executives to the strategic value of proper data management by focusing on business alignment and the “strategic WHY.” As Principal Consultant for MetaMeta Consulting he helps Enterprises and Tech Brands tell their data story.

Closing Keynote - Generative AI, Privacy, and the Future of Information Governance: A Fireside Chat with Dr. Christopher Parsons, Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario
The rise of artificial intelligence technologies and generative AI systems, such as ChatGPT, create potential opportunities and pose novel challenges for information management professionals. There is the potential for these systems to enhance the ability to identify and retrieve digital records. However, simultaneously these systems can raise questions about how particular searches for records are conducted; how decisions have been reached when AI or generative technologies are involved in decision-making processes; and the overarching impact on privacy. In this emerging era, how might these technologies be governed or what should be considered ahead of their adoption? Please join us for a fireside-style chat with Dr. Christopher Parsons, Senior Technology and Policy Advisor at the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario and John Isaza, Partner-Rimon Law, to explore these concepts and how information management professionals could adopt AI and generative technologies in responsible and reliable ways.
Speaker: Dr. Christopher Parsons, Senior Technology and Policy Advisor, Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario
Prior to his current position, Dr. Parsons held the position of a Senior Research Associate at the Munk School’s Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto, where his research focused on third-party access to telecommunications data, data privacy, data security, and national security. He holds a Ph.D in Political Science from the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria, and a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from the University of Guelph.
