Confidential documents are created each day. Some information you process or develop may not even seem confidential or sensitive, but it still could be potentially harmful if placed in the wrong hands. This is a risk that your business should not take. Sensitive information can be anything from memos to legal information. Our goal is to help you protect yourself, your business and your team from a data breach.
Customers choose to do business with you because they trust you. Business interactions can lead to the collection of many forms of confidential information and it’s your job as the organization to protect this. Both federal and provincial law ensure that you are taking all of the measures necessary to protect your customers confidential information. Many companies have learned this the hard way through criminal and civil prosecution. In Canada, there are three main acts to ensure that each business is performing their due diligence when it comes to protecting others.
Canada’s Protection Acts
- Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA)
- Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
- The Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA)
