Canadian File Sharing and Data Residency

Canada Maple Leaf

PIPEDA Compliance

As a professional working in a private-sector organization in Canada, you’re required to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), which governs how you collect, use, and disclose personal information. When it comes to safeguarding this information, you’re responsible for ensuring confidentiality of it and it’s up to you to decide what methods you use to protect it.

In terms of data residency, storing your confidential data outside of the country can be quite unsettling. Once information leaves Canada’s jurisdiction, it is subject to the rules and regulations of the country (or countries) it’s being hosted in. This raises new challenges and your company is liable for any problems that occur with the data.

File Sharing Methods That Don’t Keep You Compliant

Email – As convenient as it may be, sharing personal information through non-secure platforms like email isn’t going to cut it. Emails get intercepted quite frequently and it puts confidential information at risk.

Courier – Once you drop off files in the mail, there are a few things that can happen. The package get delivered successfully, or it may end up getting lost or stolen, in which case you won’t know who will end up with the information.
