What I'll remember about 2023


What I'll remember about 2023


The protection of personal data has meant a lot of work for NPOs in Quebec.  And I'm not even talking about cybersecurity, the almost new market that will swallow up substantial sums in insurance.

Can AI do any good? That's the question!

Especially as 2024 will be the 100th anniversary of its entry into force.

I wish you all the best for 2024!
Respect for your rights and prosperity.
