FTR Now: Federal Legislation Introduced to Create “PIPEDA 2.0”
Date: June 9, 2010
As previously reported, on May 25, 2010, the federal government introduced two Bills that if passed, would significantly amend PIPEDA: Bill C-29, the Safeguarding Canadians’ Personal Information Act and Bill C-28, the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act.
In our FTR Now of June 9. 2010, we summarize the major changes to PIPEDA outlined in both Bills and explain why these changes make it time for Canadian organizations to pay special attention to privacy protection and data security.
