In context of Law 25
Data and your business
Respect for privacy at the center of debates in society
In order to avoid abuses and slippages, government authorities are gradually introducing new measures to oversee the good management of this data in order to respect, among other things, the privacy of citizens.
What is Law 25?
Law 25 modernizes the Personal Information Protection Act which will apply to private companies and public organizations in Quebec. In summary, this law impacts your business at different levels:
Any incident must be reported to the Commission d’access à l’information du Québec, or to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada if the company is outside of Quebec.

Failure to comply with Law 25 can have serious consequences for your business.
It could be very costly not to comply with Law 25! Indeed, we are talking about administrative penalties of up to $10M or up to 2% of your company’s revenue (the higher of the two amounts). In addition, fines in the event of criminal proceedings of around $25M or 4% of revenue are on the table.
Beyond the Law; CyberSecure standards
In Canada, there is a cyber security certification program for companies with fewer than 500 employees; CyberSecure
This program allows you to:
N Gives you a competitive advantage over your competitors
N Reassure your customers and partners about the protection of their data
N Make it easier to obtain cyber risk insurance and reduce the cost of the premium
Get certified to better protect yourself
In your Law 25 compliance efforts, cybersecurity certification helps your business work upstream to prevent instead of cure! In short, certification will minimize the risk of incidents, attacks and ultimately sanctions in the event of theft of your data!
We offer a complete support service to help you obtain CyberSecure certification hassle-free. To find out more, visit our page explaining this service; CyberSecure support.
