The consequences of data breach have never been higher. And whether accidental or malevolent, one of an organization’s greatest data breach risks is posed by its own employees. David will explain why a strategy to avoid and handle data breaches by employees is a crucial component of every data breach risk mitigation plan, the key elements of the employee breach risk strategy, and how to deal with breaching employees.

The transformation of the Canada Business Corporations Act (CBCA) to a more modern and transparent regime is continuing. Jeff will highlight the key recent and planned amendments to the CBCA relevant to each of private and public CBCA corporations, including the new register of individuals with significant control requirement, expanded diversity and other reporting obligations, and shareholders’ say-on-pay.

Cannabis Update: Digesting the Legalization of Edible Cannabis
