Summary

International business profile with MBA in International Business and professional experience acquired in Europe and Canada. I have a strong interest in new technologies and how they are commercialized. I am also completing a degree covering information access and the protection of personal information, which I believe represent a critical aspect of new technology adoption by the general public.

IAPP Certificate

University of Alberta

This program offered by the University of Alberta's Faculty of Extension is offered through distance learning.

It is typically completed by individuals who work in the information access and privacy protection field, over 2 years. I have completed all core modules and have chosen the elective course focusing on Health Information and Privacy.

The main focus of the program was on Canadian Information Access legislation (Federal Information Access Act, provincial acts, Alberta's FOIP Act), Privacy legislation (Federal Act, BC or Alberta's PIPA0 and Health Information Legislation (Alberta's Health Information Act, HIPAA in the US).

Besides general and theoretical knowledge, the program also gives students the opportunity to apply that knowledge through practical exercises, such as completing Privacy Impact Assessments, conducting small research projects, which I decided to do by surveying people about their online behaviours when it comes to protecting their personal information.
