Data breach notification… in Canada

By | Tuesday June 23rd, 2015

This article from Financial Post explains the Digital Privacy Act that became law on June 18 in Canada.

It’s not related to Europe, but Canada. However it showcases a common trend in several countries. Data breach shall be notified.

The mandatory notification provisions require organizations to notify the Privacy Commissioner as well as potentially affected individuals of a privacy breach “as soon as feasible,” but only if there is a “real risk of significant harm.”
