Challenging World of Data Privacy and Risk Management

2024-03-28 7:00 pm

2024-03-29

Join us as Awad Loubani presents perspectives on the “Challenging World of Data Privacy and Risk Management”. In many jurisdictions, privacy is considered a fundamental human right, and data protection laws exist to guard that right. Data privacy is also important because for individuals to be willing to engage online, they have to trust that their personal data will be handled with care. Organizations use data protection practices to demonstrate to their customers and users that they can be trusted with their personal data. The information rich session will address the following topics: * Protection the online privacy of Canadians in today’s overwhelmingly digital world. * Case study: CRA privacy guiding principles. * New laws to strengthen Canadians’ privacy & trust in digital economy. * Artificial Intelligence and Data Act. * Summary of privacy regulations in Canada. * EU Artificial Intelligence Act. * Other relevant privacy legislations & regulations. * Other relevant topics: ESG; ERM; ISO 31000 standard on risk management. Awad Loubani is President of A.M.A.L. Risk Management Services Inc. As a Canadian and international risk management (RM) expert, Awad is a trailblazer in enhancing the risk management function within organizations by moving the risk culture from avoidance to focusing on “informed risk outcomes”. He advocates managing risk to protect/grow the firm’s value by enabling it to achieve its objectives more effectively and with greater long-term certainty. He helps organizations survive and thrive with the ability to identify, assess, and manage their key risks. His approach to effective RM enables organizations to achieve their objectives by continually assessing risks to reduce surprises, capitalize on opportunities and improve performance.

2024-02 Cleantech & Complex data sets, & BI Tool Security & Architecture

2024-02-28 5:30 pm

2024-02-29

Join us on February 28 at Platform Calgary for two great presentations. **Schedule:** 5:30 - Pizza and Networking 6:00 - Presentations and Discussion 7:30 - Wrap up **Presentation 1 -** **Cleantech in the home and the impact of complex data sets** **Presenter:** Remus Lacatus from Jotson There are many questions that are hard to answer when it comes to cleantech options in your home. Should you install a heat pump? Will replacing your furnace reduce your emissions? What about EVs and Solar Panels? Most Canadians struggle to answer these questions and more. Join us for a presentation and discussion about the challenges homeowners face when making decisions about household energy. Using a data-driven case study of heat pumps, we’ll go beyond smart thermostats and LED lights, and dive into the facts around energy consumption, cost, carbon footprint, and the potential impact of cleatech for residential use. You’ll leave this session empowered with real-life examples of how the right data can empower informed decisions about cleantech at home. **Presentation 2** - **I Can’t Find a Good Youtube Tutorial on BI Tool Security** **Presenter:** Roland Booth from Benevity Roland Booth is a software engineer with 3 years experience in data & analytics, 6 years experience in information security, and a passion for pioneering new technical frontiers. While obtaining a B.Sc in Computer Science and B.Sc in Pure Mathematics at UCalgary, he entered the information security field through cryptography research, analyzing the security of next-gen digital signature schemes. After, he redirected his passion for engineering, mathematics, and information security to the data & analytics space. Roland develops systems that empower people to get answers out of data, solving for a variety of skill sets, goals, and data-literacy levels. He works extensively with Business Intelligence Tools, spanning a variety of tools, scales, and use cases. Business Intelligence tools (think Looker, Power BI or Tableau) are powerful. They give users a wide-open door to your organization’s data and the tools they need to dig through it. (And to share it.) Perhaps, just maybe, you do not want each and every user to have unmitigated access to this tool. BI Tools provide a variety of features to restrict data access, but assembling them into your organization’s BI Tool Security Architecture is not trivial. And once you roll out your architecture, you’re stuck with it. It’s worth getting right the first time.In this tool-agnostic talk, I’ll introduce common BI Tool access control features. How they fit together, how they don’t. The good, the bad, the stupid, and lessons learned from year’s experience working with them.

Tickets follow a pay-what-you-can model and can be found here: [https://pydata.org/global2023/tickets](https://pydata.org/global2023/tickets) **Why Charge for an Online Conference?** Revenue from the event will go to PyData and NumFOCUS, a nonprofit organization that supports open source scientific computer programming. NumFOCUS currently sponsors 60 Open Source Projects, and organizes community-driven educational programs for users and developers of open source scientific tools. While the 2023 PyData Global Conference has no costs for venue or catering, there are still costs associated with bringing the event online. We also need to continue paying fixed costs to keep NumFOCUS healthy, as well as continue supporting the open source community. For this reason, we have chosen to sell tickets with a pay-what-you-can pricing model. We appreciate your support for us during this time so that we can keep supporting you in the future.

Data Considerations for Grants

2023-11-23 7:00 pm

2023-11-24

**Are you passionate about driving a positive impact in our community using data?** Modern grantors increasingly value evidence-backed proposals that leverage data-driven insights to address societal challenges. Whether advocating for a community project, a research endeavor, or a non-profit initiative, incorporating data into your grant application enhances credibility and demonstrates a strategic approach. On November 23, join us online as we welcome our guest speaker, Marc LePage. Marc is an experienced data professional who will be helping us understand how to help non-profit organizations use data in their grant applications. Grant applications are a discipline of their own. It is easy to lose momentum or even miss a deadline without data available. After being approved, there are often obligations to report on the impact of the initiative or event. An overview for approaching these challenges will include: * Data Sources for Questions & Answers * Definitions (Budget, Impact, Categories) * Repeatability and reproducibility Applying data management principles can make the most of limited resources and leave more time to focus on the goals & strategy behind applications. Please invite your friends, peers, and anyone interested in driving positive change through data. We are looking forward to meeting everyone! 📅 Date: Thursday, November 23rd 🕔 Time: 7:00 - 8:00 PM 📍 Location: Online (Zoom link to be shared with attendees) **Speaker's Bio**: Marc is a CDMP-certified data professional with 12 years of BI experience specializing in Reporting and Data Migration. He is also a board member of a local community association and has experience working with non-profit organizations. Don’t miss your opportunity to hear from Marc! Secure your spot today! **About Data for Good**: Data For Good YYC is a collective of volunteer do-gooders who want to use their powers for good to help make our communities better through data. We help non-profit and social organizations harness the power of their data through analytics and visualizations to leverage their impact in the community.
