Security & Privacy Conference - Synergies in an e-Society

6th Annual Conference & Exposition
Victoria Conference Centre, Victoria, British Columbia
February 10-11, 2005

Workshop Sessions
Wednesday, February 9, 2005, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Session 1 Managing Electronic Records
Effective management of e-records requires a reasonable and comprehensive IM/IT infrastructure of up-to-date policies, records retention and disposition schedules, long-term preservation strategies, and supporting technical systems and tools. This workshop explores the application of records management theory and practices to the challenges of digital information. One solution for managing electronic records within the active office environment will be illustrated through a demonstration of British Columbia's Enterprise Document and Records Management System (TRIM). In addition, the workshop includes an introduction to the issue of digital preservation. There will also be time scheduled for questions.


  • Glen Isaac, Manager, Corporate Records Management Branch
  • Peter Van Garderen, Consultant, Artefactual Systems
Session 2 Privacy in the Workplace: Do's and Don'ts
An overview of key privacy issues impacting the workplace including what personal information can be collected, how to conduct reference checks, record retention (i.e. unsolicited resumes), access to personnel records, employee monitoring and health/disability issues.


  • Lorrainne Dixon, Privacy and Information Consultant
Session 3 Critical Security Incidents - What's your plan?
The ability to respond effectively to critical security incidents (such as malware and wide spread power outages) is vital to a comprehensive information security program. The IT Security branch has been developing a Security Incident Response Plan (SIRP), based on BCERMS (BC Emergency Response Management System) and ICS (Incident Command System) to enable government to respond to critical information technology security incidents. This workshop will provide an overview of the program, how it was implemented and the trials and tribulations involved in implementing this plan across the SPAN (Shared Provincial Access Network) BC network which includes 90 Regional Network Centres, over 2,600 servers and more than 150,000 unique userID's.


  • Susan Bedwell, CPP, Senior Security Specialist
Session 4 Who Are You? - Identity Management in an Online World

The Corporate Authentication Program (CAP) is an all-of-government approach to online authentication that will facilitate public access to, and enhance confidence in, B.C.'s e-government vision. CAP will set up a single and common way for citizens, businesses and other external organizations to authenticate (or verify) their electronic identity when accessing BC government services online. In short, the CAP project will develop specific standards and a common central mechanism for online identity verification.

The CAP workshop will be divided into two parts: part one will provide a high level overview of the CAP project, setting out its scope and requirements, as well as outlining the proposed authentication solution; part two will focus on the work associated with the project's main activity streams. Some of the main topics that will be addressed include: policy and privacy issues, in-person identity-proofing, building the technical architecture; and the registration process for businesses and citizens.


  • Chris Norman, Project Sponsor, CAP
  • Anthony Roy, Project Director, CAP
  • Charmaine Lowe, Policy Lead, CAP
