Event description

Description

Are you prepared for the new requirements under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). PIPEDA is the federal privacy law for private-sector organizations. It sets out the ground rules for how businesses must handle personal information in the course of commercial activity.

Join us for a complimentary lunch as we hear from the Siskinds Technology and Cyber Security Group, as they discuss these new rules which could mean new costs, risks and challenges for organizations, large and small, with respect to legal risk management, compliance, and incident response planning.

About the Speakers:

Peter Dillon, Head of Technology and Cyber Security Group

Peter will discuss when and how to provide notification to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, and to individual data subjects. He will also summarize the internal safeguards, policies and procedures to adequately detect, escalate and respond to privacy incidents.

Drew Johnson, Technology and Cyber Security Group

Drew will discuss the European perspective on breach notification under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and whether Canadian businesses may also fall subject to the breach notification requirements of the GDPR. He will also touch on the contents of an incident response plan and suggested training for employees regarding the need to escalate and report all suspected breaches.

Sajjad Nematollahi, Class-action Team

Sajjad served as counsel on the Facebook, BMO and Simplii Privacy Breach class actions, and will provide an update and advice on class actions relating to data breaches generally, including a discussion of potential costs and risks arising from the breach notification and mandatory record keeping requirements.
