Implementing a privacy management program for your business is a critical yet complex undertaking. Join us as we examine recent findings and resources issued by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.
This session will include a review of the key guidance document, Getting Accountability Right with a Privacy Management Program.
Learn about the key issues concerning privacy―and how not to breach it. We’ll provide helpful tips and point you toward online checklists and other resources provided by the OPC.
