100% PIPEDA Compliant File Sharing and Storage
Why is PIPEDA compliance important?
If you’re a professional working in the healthcare, accounting, legal, or insurance industries, you’re likely very familiar with the importance of complying with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). The Act regulates how private-sector organizations collect, use, and disclose personal information in for-profit or commercial activities in Canada.
Here is a quick summary of PIPEDA requirements in regards to safeguarding data:
- Personal information must be protected in a way that’s appropriate to how sensitive it is
- Regardless of how the information is stored, information must be protected from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, copy, or modification
According to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada website, personal information is information in any form that includes:
- Age, name, ID numbers, income, ethnic origin, or blood type;
- Opinions, evaluations, comments, social status, or disciplinary actions; and
- Employee files, credit records, loan records, medical records, existence of a dispute between a consumer and a merchant, intentions (for example, to acquire goods or services, or change jobs).
What are the penalties for PIPEDA violations?
Organizations can be fined up to $100,000 CAD per violation for knowingly violating PIPEDA requirements and failing to report data breaches.
