Amendments to the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act require all organizations to report to Canada’s privacy commissioner any breach that poses real risk of significant harm, notify affected individuals, and keep a record of every privacy breach no matter how nonthreatening.

Are you prepared as an organization?

Your business, operations and risks are unique and should be reviewed and assessed by a qualified insurance professional. A proper exposure analysis should always be completed to determine the proper coverage.
