Event 3 – Trust through Transparency

2020 Information Summit presents Trust through Transparency 

Trust is measurable and has a value. For private institutions and a variety of public bodies, trust has been eroding, but there are actions that can be taken to repair, build and maintain that trust. There are also actions people can take to discover whether organizations are worthy of their trust.

This event has been accredited by the Law Society of BC for 1.0 Continuing Professional Development credit.

Date & Time:
October 15, 2020
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (check-in at 11:30 AM)

The event will be held via Microsoft Teams. More information will be sent upon registration.



This panel examines how trust is connected to concepts of transparency and privacy. Dr. David Dunne, Professor at the University of Victoria and Director of MBA Programs at the Gustavson School of Business, is part of The Gustavson Brand Trust Index measuring the public trust of over 300 brands in Canada annually. He will be speaking to recent findings and how trust and transparency intersect. Katherine Reilly, an Associate Professor at Simon Fraser University School of Communication, will be speaking about the concept of citizen data audits and how these empower people to hold the organizations controlling their data and information to account. FIPA is excited to have both presenters speaking on issues at the heart of trust through transparency.

For anyone interested in the value of trust, as well as legal and privacy professionals, this presentation and facilitated question and answer session presents a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the practices, ethical considerations, and implications to governance as organizations and people strive to build, restore, or maintain trust.
