[Webinar Recap] Canadian Privacy Law: A Legal Framework for Cybersecurity

Note: It has been nearly two years since Wendy Wagner, Partner in Gowling WLG’s Ottawa office, originally delivered this talk, but many organizations are still catching up to her messaging on Canadian Privacy Law and cybersecurity.

On January 19th, [2017] Opportunities NB (ONB) hosted a conversation with Wendy Wagner, partner in Gowling WLG’s Ottawa office and leader of the firm’s Privacy & Data Protection Group.

Cyber breaches and related incidents are daily occurrences within Canada and around the world. Companies recognize the need to protect their data in order to safeguard key informational assets. Less well understood, however, is the legal imperative to protect data, particularly the personal information of your customers, employees, and others.

This webinar touches on existing obligations under Canadian law for protecting personal information, and new legal requirements for cyber breach reporting and data security.

Wendy’s presentation is embedded here. The full webinar recording is available below.
