PIPEDA Compliance

PIPEDA Compliance

Icon

In Canada, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) establishes laws that regulate the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information by private sector organizations.

The PIPEDA compliance laws state that personal information must be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, including technological measures, such as the use of passwords and encryption.  Fines of up to $100,000 may be assessed for non-compliance with PIPEDA.
