Ann Cavoukian and the Fundamentals of Data Privacy

Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognized as one of the world’s leading privacy experts and is the Executive Director at the Global Privacy & Security by Design Centre. After serving an unprecedented three terms as the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada, she created Privacy by Design, a framework that seeks to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technologies, networked infrastructure and business practices, thereby achieving the strongest protection possible.

Ann asks how can organizations act in their customers’ best interests when it comes to privacy & security? How difficult is it to implement data privacy best practices? Can personal freedoms and robust data analytics coexist?

Iain Klugman and Creating a Culture of Radical Transparency

Iain Klugman is perhaps best known as the former President and CEO of Communitech in Waterloo Region — Canada’s hottest technology cluster. Under his leadership, Communitech became one of North America’s leading tech-enabling organizations, supporting the growth of more than 1,000 small, mid-sized and large technology companies. He believes passionately in the power of the entrepreneur-driven economy, and its ability to deliver big results for Canada. Today, Iain maintains close ties with Communitech in his role as the Advisor to the CEO of Communitech and also serves as Strategic Advisor to Health Canada, playing a significant role with the latter in the rollout of vaccines amidst the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Iain joins Jason to ask what does it take to roll out a vaccine during a global pandemic? How can executives foster a rich culture with a diversity of opinions? What is radical transparency and why does it matter?

Geoffrey Cann and the Engine of Innovation for Oil & Gas

How can Oil & Gas companies achieve digital transformation? How can energy providers innovate as data continues to grow exponentially? Is Oil & Gas ready for Artificial Intelligence? These were some of the questions Host and Shinydocs CEO Jason Cassidy asked accomplished Speaker, Trainer and Author, Geoffrey Cann who is on a mission to accelerate digital energy.

Author of Bits, Bytes and Barrels: The Digital Transformation of Oil & Gas! Geoffrey helps solve for the demand-supply imbalance for digital innovation in oil and gas where there is a shortage of demand for innovation but ample available supply.

Episode 13: Dave McComb and the Data-Centric Revolution – Part 2

In part two of Jason’s conversation with Dave McComb, CEO of Semantic Arts, they continue their discussion of the increasing importance of digital transformation for the enterprise. Dave shares his views on how focus should be given to understanding your data rather than on specific programs to uncover meaning.

Your data holds more meaning and insights than you may realize, and that’s why understanding it unlocks true innovation and cost savings for your business.

Episode 12: Dave McComb and the Data-Centric Revolution

You’ve probably heard the words ‘digital transformation’ thrown around quite frequently these days. And although we may be sick of hearing this buzzword, it is still a useful way to describe the ultimate goal our organizations should be striving to achieve. In this week’s episode, Semantic Arts CEO Dave McComb shares that to make this change, organizations need to focus on their data, not single applications or programs.

Episode 11: John Mancini and the Secret Sauce of Information Governance

John Mancini is well versed in information management and data intelligence. He returns in part two of our discussion to talk about the increased complexity of data and the lack of standardization across applications and solutions.

Jason and John discuss the problems (and opportunities) that have arisen from the exponential data growth organizations have experienced over the past two decades. We are living in an age of information chaos and companies are naturally very sceptical about their ability to deal with this problem. The responsibility has fallen on information managers to be the common denominator between the different ‘dialects’ being spoken across different areas of the organization and across systems.

Episode 10: John Mancini and the Question of 80%

It’s been an article of faith for the past 25 years that 80% of information in the organization is unstructured and unmanaged and yet no one can seem to dig up the source of that ubiquitous stat. John Mancini is a well known industry strategist, writer, keynote speaker, former president of AIIM and host of his own video series The OxyMorons so he’s no stranger to information management. He’s since polled thousands of knowledge workers about the volume of information they’re facing and how much is actually unstructured.

From there it’s a throwback to the birth of ECM. Back in the 90’s ECMs were purpose built to manage and automate mission critical, document intensive, large scale processes at organizations. But that was tied to a limited amount of information. The scale has exploded and organizations need to let go of unrealistic expectations around how much records management the average knowledge work is inclined to perform.

Episode 9: Bob Larrivee and Records Managers on the Moon!

Independent analyst Bob Larrivee joins us to discuss the growth in the nuclear sector with new companies working to create mini and micro-reactors that is creating a state wide network of facilities, which leads to a whole new set of information governance challenges of their own. Records managers will soon have to wrestle with universal clients – literary at the extra-terrestrial level with the companies working with NASA to potentially place reactors on the moon.

Out in space and here on earth companies still need to face the gap between the ideal and the reality when it comes to managing data, otherwise you end up with nothing more than a costly digital dumpster.

Episode 8: Bob Larrivee on People, Process, Information & Technology

The corporate information ecosystem has drastically changed as a result of Covid. The new work from home reality has amplified internal inconsistencies in how information had been managed. This has led to information chaos and companies will either sink or swim.

It’s all about people, process, information and technology in that order. Technology without strategic thinking is just reactionary. Processes that don’t take people into consideration will stall. Companies need to take an holistic approach to solutions and to their data. Without context data is meaningless and projects are doomed to failure.
