About this Event

About this Event

The coming into force of mandatory breach notification and record-keeping requirements on November 1, 2018 should be viewed by organizations as an effort to align Canadian legal and regulatory requirements with those in the United States and Europe (especially with the General Data Protection Regulations – or GDPR – coming into force in May 2018).

In this seminar DigitalDefence and our panel of industry experts will teach you how to comply with these requirements, by taking the following steps:

  • First, ensure that the organization has written policies and systems in place allowing for internal monitoring, tracking and reporting of data breaches.

  • Second, ensure that organizational policies address containment, investigation, notification and remediation of data breaches and reflect the new requirements. This may include the development of a “matrix” allowing the organization to quickly determine whether the “real risk of significant harm” threshold has been met for notification purposes.

  • Third, assume that notifications to the OPC and affected individuals may result in scrutiny of the organization’s security safeguards and overall response to a data breach. This may come in the form of regulatory investigations, legal actions launched by affected individuals (including class actions) or queries from the media.

  • Fourth, have a written “game plan” that takes into account key factors that matter to the organization (e.g., impact on the brand, operational disruption, etc.) and that outlines the organization’s response strategy.
