7 What’s needed Governments should continue and expand collaboration through shared research and shared experiences. – Identify leaders to make sure benefits are realized Policy centres in the area of privacy, official languages, security, and information management need to understand the new paradigm and promote updated legislation and guidelines as required. Leaders need to build a climate and behaviour patterns within their work units and organizations that support: collaboration, building trust, respecting privacy/security/language/IM needs, and making "the right mistakes" while improving service delivery and efficiency. 7

8 Recommendations for further action Build engagement within your organization first – clearly identified, sustained and accountable leadership. – trust your staff – make the right mistakes – use often updated guidelines, supported by periodic legislative change – do the business case -- cost/benefit analyses, measures of success, change management plan Learn from others: collaboration within govt, across govt, through the UN Engage Citizens – requires that govt value citizens, trust them, and has both the tools to engage and the will to engage 8

Only after these conditions have been met will CSEC release the suppressed information.” 2008-09 Annual Report of the Office of the Communications Establishment Security Commissioner TORONTO – The future of privacy will require a paradigm shift: regulation alone will be unsustainable for ensuring privacy going forward in to the world of the cloud, says Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian. “…the overwhelming growth in the production of digital material, which has created an overabundance of information in a variety of formats, as well as changing user behaviors and expectations about information, have created considerable challenges for all documentary memory institutions.” Modernization @ LAC… 11
