Missed AIIM 2014? Or did you just miss out on a session or three you wanted to see? In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing many of the presentations with you. Actionable advice and thought leadership brought to you by some of the smartest people in the information technology industry.

Else Khoury presented Getting Lost in the Cloud: Privacy Risks and Cloud Computing.

Although cloud computing presents a compelling business case for companies looking to reduce spending, streamline processes, and increase accessibility, the very idea of trans-border data flows raises the hackles of privacy advocates all over the globe. In Canada, government and members of the public have expressed serious concern over the potential misuse of personal information gone offshore. Join Else for an overview of those concerns and what they might mean for your organization.

Else is the Manager of Information Management Services and the Freedom of Information and Privacy Coordinator for Niagara Region, an upper-tier municipal government body which serves a population of 440,000 in Ontario, Canada. Else is in the unenviable position of managing privacy issues for approximately 3000 staff, many of whom believe that “the cloud” is the best thing since chocolate dipped bacon. Else is responsible for developing policy, training, and compliance on FOI, Privacy, and Information Management, which she accomplishes with the help of an incredibly dedicated team and a healthy dose of ridiculous idealism.
