•  Emissions Reduction Alberta Update
Presenter: Steve MacDonald, CEO, Emissions Reduction Alberta

Ensuring Alberta's success in a lower carbon economy requires the identification and acceleration of technologies. Steve will discuss what Alberta's innovation system, and Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) specifically, is doing to help industry cut costs and cut carbon. 

•  Going Paperless is the Goal, Digital Signatures are the Solution
    Presenter: Marc St-JacquesVice President, Sales and Marketing, Notarius

As organizations move from paper to electronic filing, one of the key challenges in this transformation is the authentication of these files. During the session, discover the diverse types of digital signatures and how they can be used to sign distinct types of documents as a person, a professional, a department or an organization.

Points covered:

        •    Explain the difference between electronic signatures, trusted electronic signatures and digital signatures
        •    Demonstrate the best practices involved in deploying digital authentication
        •    Explain APEGA’s role and digital authentication guidelines
        •    Review a few myths and realities related to electronic signatures, trusted electronic signatures and digital signatures

•  Emerging Contractual Obligations
Presenter: Magdalena CammidgePrincipal, Lloyd Sadd Insurance Brokers Ltd.

This presentation will discuss the appearance of Cyber Liability requirements in contracts and determine what that actually is, how it applies to privacy and confidentiality provisions and how insurance can fill that gap.

•  The Opportunity of Technological Disruption
    Presenter: Jeff DiBattista, P.Eng., Ph.D., MBA, ICD.D., FCSCE, Leed AP®, Practice Principal, DIALOG

The world is changing with astonishing speed, driven by technological advancement. Join Jeff DiBattista for a provocative—and perhaps a bit unnerving—exploration of some of the technological disruptions emerging in our society, along with an examination of the foundations underlying those trends. 

By drawing upon tangible examples, Jeff illustrates how technological advancements have developed over the past several decades. With that understanding, we can begin to imagine how technology may develop in the years ahead, and how technological disruptions might affect society, the design and construction industry, our careers, and our families.

Is technological change a threat? Or an opportunity? Or both? Join the discussion, and decide for yourself.
