“The success of the workshop in Regina is our proof of concept that such events are extremely valuable if the right partnerships are forged in advance,” said NAID CEO Bob Johnson about the success of this week’s Data Destruction Policy and Training Development Workshop in Saskatchewan’s capital.

On Tuesday, Oct. 16, Johnson instructed compliance professionals from more than 40 of the province’s top health care organizations on how to use NAID’s Information Destruction Policy Toolkit and Employee Training Program. The event was opened by Gary Dickson, Saskatchewan’s Information and Privacy Commissioner (IPC), who also attended the half-day workshop.

“When you consider that this workshop will affect the data destruction policies and training for virtually every major health care organization in the region, the true impact hits home,” Johnson added. “Now that we know how to do it, we feel we can replicate it anywhere, which will deliver big benefits to members across North America and around the world.

Next up for the policy workshop is Toronto. The event originally schedule for this week was postponed due to a last-minute schedule conflict for Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario’s IPC. Instead, the event will be held in January or February 2013. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.
