Cathy Evanochko CAPP

Cathy has worked for the Calgary Board of Education for 27 years in a variety of positions, both in schools and in administrative settings.  For the past five years,  Cathy has been the FOIP Coordinator and privacy officer working out of the Legal Services Department.  One of the current priorities has been to set up a privacy impact assessment (PIA) process that is clear and easy to use, both for system-wide tools as well as the Web 2.0 tools used in schools.  Cathy has worked hard to change the perspective that FOIP limits the ability to use technology creatively.  Rather, Cathy endorses the concept that “I will promote the ethical and innovative use of data.  Privacy AND progress, not privacy OR progress.”
