WEBINAR ~ Privacy Please

New Mandatory Breach Reporting Requirements under PIPEDA

March 20, 2019    │   12:00 pm  to  1:00 pm
Webinar Only ~ No in-person attendance


On November 1, 2018, amendments to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) came into force which impose mandatory breach reporting, notification and record-keeping requirements on organizations subject to PIPEDA. This includes law firms. 

Who Should Attend: This webinar presentation is designed to provide practitioners who do not specialize in privacy law with a primer on the new PIPEDA requirements as well as an update on other cutting edge privacy law topics.

Andrew Buck, an experienced presenter on privacy and data protection matters, will provide answers to key questions regarding PIPEDA, including:

  • What do the recent amendments to PIPEDA change with respect to breach reporting?
  • What constitutes a breach and do I have to report every one?
  • How do I file a breach report and where do I file it?
  • When do I need to notify the person whose information was affected by the breach?
  • What records do I need to keep about a breach?

Andrew will also share privacy law basics on other topics such as:

  • Privacy considerations arising in the employment context - monitoring employee email and internet usage, social media and more.
  • Surreptitious recording - yea, nay or grey?
  • Crossing the border with your laptop or smartphone - what you need to know.
  • Can you store client information in the cloud?
  • Evidence obtained in breach of privacy - what now?

Webinar Registration Fee: $45 plus GST (includes materials sent electronically) 
Registrants will receive an email prior to March 20 with detailed instructions on how to connect.

Eligibility For CPD Hours: This program may be reported for up to 1 hour of eligible CPD activity, including 0.5 hours of EPPM.
