It’s the law now: mandatory data breach reporting.
If your organization’s data is breached, do you know the steps you’re required to follow, and whether it needs to be reported to to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC)?
On November 1, 2018 the Canadian government released new regulations for how organizations report data breaches under Canada’s federal data protection law, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
Organizations that fail to comply with these rules could face financial penalties and legal action.
Grant Thornton LLP has partnered with the Saint John Region Chamber of Commerce to help shed light on this important topic with Saint John businesses. In this complimentary lunch session, you’ll learn more about:
- What constitutes a data breach
- The types of breaches that must be disclosed
- How to submit a breach report to the OPC
- When and how impacted individuals need to be notified
- The mandatory record-keeping requirements for all breaches
- What areas are not covered in the regulations
- How to safeguard your organization from data breaches
