The Digital Privacy Act (DPA) and Small Business
Aside from the obvious ramifications of a breach such as lost data and revenue, one of the many new requirements of the DPA (effective November 2018) requires all Canadian organizations to "keep and maintain a record of every breach of security safeguards involving personal information under its control."
These new mandatory reporting requirements will have an impact on businesses across Canada. For small business, what does this mean? How can small business prepare for the DPA amendment?
