In Canada, governments are proposing new privacy laws to give individuals more control over and transparency into how companies handle personal information.
With recent legislative initiatives like the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 (Bill C-11), entitled the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA), and Quebec’s Bill 64, organizations are facing increasing challenges to getting value out of data responsibly and securely.
Other jurisdictions are looking to follow suit with their own new laws. With discussions about privacy taking centre stage amid the growing demand for data, people are more aware of their privacy rights than ever before.
The changing landscape means privacy and data protection are fundamental business issues, regardless of which jurisdiction an organization is in or where it does business. As concern about privacy becomes a global phenomenon, organizations are collecting and processing large amounts of personal information, including sensitive personal information, which means privacy, security and trust are becoming increasingly vital and intertwined.
