The Fields Institute, 222 College Street, Room 230, Toronto, Ontario.

The Sixth CACR Information Security Workshop, also titled the 1st Annual Privacy and Security Workshop, will be held on Friday, November 10, 2000 at the Fields Institute, Toronto, Ontario. This workshop, organized jointly with the Information & Privacy Commission, Ontario, will focus on issues and solutions that arise when incorporating privacy into the security domain.

Privacy is a growing issue in the area of technology (both wired and wireless applications). Privacy needs to be understood as a separate issue to that of security. It also needs to be addressed in the design and implementation of any system using PKI, wired and/or wireless technologies. This includes everything from devices to databases.

This workshop provides an opportunity for participants to develop a working vocabulary of privacy issues which technology needs to address for consumer acceptance. The workshop will also speak to the need for public and private sector organizations to address the privacy issues inherent in using these technologies. Additionally, tools to assess the privacy impact of technologies will be covered.

The intended audience includes technology and security experts, CIO's, senior technology executives, cryptographers, and engineers.
