PIPEDA Privacy Breach Notification Rules

November 1, 2018  

privacy breach Organizations must keep a record of all breaches to “security safeguards” (data breaches or failure of security measures) that pose a “real risk of significant harm” to individuals. The risk of "significant harm" will be assessed on its own merits for each case.

Breach Recording, Reporting, and Notifications

Reporting and notification is required as soon as feasibly possible after an organization determines a breach has occurred. The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada must be notified, likely the individuals affected, and possibly relevant third parties. Keep detailed records so that you can comply with the reporting and notification requirements.
