Sharon Cohen, President Shared Solutions Consulting


In the video segments below, Sharon Cohen, the founding President of Shared Solutions Consulting and former Chief Executive Officer of Ontario Shared Services, discusses privacy strategies in the public sector. In the immediate aftermath of the largest privacy breach in the history of the Ontario Government, the Ontario Shared Services organization (which provides a range of financial and administrative business services for all Ontario government ministries) found itself the subject of an independently conducted, end-to-end review of its privacy practices, with the results directed to be made public. Challenged to move the organization from crisis to confidence, Ontario Shared Services developed an innovative public-sector-based privacy standard against which it was measured, and in the process, has taken the guesswork out of privacy compliance for front-line workers and senior executives alike. The results will likely have far-reaching impacts on strengthening the privacy culture within the Ontario Public Service, and afford a practical strategy for other sectors in strengthening their privacy culture.
