  Data Security & Privacy Seminar
The CHHMA and COPA held a seminar on November 5, 2018 which covered the topic of cybersecurity from the perspective of data security and privacy.

The presenter was Catherine Gill, a senior account manager within our industry who is also completing her Masters in Communications Management degree at McMaster/Syracuse University and is doing her Masters thesis on data security and privacy.

Catherine talked about some of the major cyberbreaches that have taken place recently and outlined the new federal legislation (PIEDA - the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act) that took affect on November 1st that requires Canadian commercial organizations to not only notify the Federal Privacy Commissioner of any data breach (personal information) but also keep records of it.

  Night at the Races
After taking a few years off, CHHMA's Night at the Races returned on October 24, 2018.  This year we were also joined by members of the Canadian Office Products Association (COPA) on this fun evening at the "Favourites" Dining Room overlooking the track at Woodbine Racetrack in Etobicoke, Ontario.

Members, spouses and customers from the industry were on hand to enjoy some friendly conversation, excellent food and exciting thoroughbred horse racing at this top rated facility.

We were also joined by representatives from Habitat for Humanity Canada.

The 17th Annual Industry Memorial Golf Classic took place on October 3, 2018 at the beautiful Blue Springs Golf Club in Acton, Ontario on a comfortable fall day.
