Federal Data Breach Regulations Take Effect Nov. 1, 2018

Starting Nov. 1, 2018, Canada’s federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) will require organizations that suffer a data breach involving personal information to:

  1. Report the breach to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.
  2. Give notice of the breach to affected individuals.
  3. Maintain records of data breaches that affect personal information

In order to avoid fines and penalties, organizations will need to understand the basic requirements of PIPEDA.
