Information Access and Protection of Privacy (IAPP) Certificate Program Information Access and Protection of Privacy
University of Albertawww.ualberta.ca
A balance between privacy and transparency is a crucial issue in a democracy. Access and privacy legislation seeks to achieve this delicate balance. It is important as well as challenging to clearly understand how access and privacy principles are applied.
The Information Access and Protection of Privacy (IAPP) certificate is an award-winning online program that focuses on the theories, concepts, principles, issues, and best practices involved in the appropriate administration of access and privacy legislation such as FOIP, PIPEDA, ATIA, and others. Complex legislation, practices, and application in the public and private sectors are also explored.
The IAPP program has received the following awards: Information Rights Pioneer Award (2015); Robert C. Clark Award (2013); Grace-Pépin Access to Information Award (2011); and the CAUCE/AÉPUC Program Award of Distinction for Academic Excellence (2004).
