In context of the project of Bill 64
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 the Bill 64?
Bill 64 or soon Bill 25 modernizes the Personal Information Protection Act which will apply to private companies and public organizations in Quebec. In summary, this bill impacts your business at different levels:
All incidents must be reported to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada!
Are you able to detect when an incident occurs? Contact us to receive the best guidance in terms of compliance and cyber security!
Failure to comply with the Bill 64 can have serious consequences for your business.
It could be very costly not to comply with Bill 64! 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 Bill; 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 Bill 64 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.
