The mandatory security breach notification regime under Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) comes into effect on November 1st.  These new rules will have a significant impact on private sector organizations across all sectors.

Join the Professional Development Institute for an interactive discussion led by Adam Kardash, Partner, Privacy and Data Management Practice at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt.

This session will provide an overview of key elements of PIPEDA’s security breach notification requirements, including:

  • the meaning of “real risk of significant harm” - the legal trigger for reporting security incidents to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, and notifying affected individuals and other organizations;
  • the timing and content requirements for reporting and notification;
  • the obligations for direct and indirect notification to affected individuals; and
  • record keeping requirements.

The session will include a discussion of the broad impact of the new breach notification regime, and a snapshot of the practical steps organizations are taking to prepare and respond to security incidents.
