It’s not a matter of if you will have a privacy breach, it’s when. Organizational preparedness is the key to successful privacy breach response. The workshop will provide comments on trends in the type and magnitude of breaches reported to the OIPC. The presenters will give participants practical guidance from a regulator’s perspective, based on successful - and unsuccessful - strategies organizations have used to respond to breaches.  Discussion will include the following:

  • Developing a privacy breach response plan
  • Establishing your breach response team
  • Successful strategies in remediating privacy breaches
  • Issues around identifying affected individuals and notification challenges
