    Recorded on April 26, 2022

    Please join us for a webinar on the evolution of data localization.

    Cross-border data transfer and localization laws are rapidly evolving across Canada and around the world. What are the trends and what are the operational business impacts? Are we backing away from data localization in Canada on the one hand and adding data transfer rules on the other? And what does this mean for cloud and tech companies, public sector bodies, and for multinationals doing business in Canada?  Please join us for a discussion on these topics, featuring data privacy experts from across the country.

    CPD: 1 hour substantive
