“Canadian commissioner releases data breach notification guidelines” by Lauren Morris, quotes Toronto lawyer, John Beardwood, in an article about data breach notification guidelines.

“The guidelines provide a breach reporting form, which clarifies how the OPC expects breaches to be reported. Fasken Martineau DuMoulin partner John Beardwood said the form asks for information that is not mentioned in the 2015 legislation that created the breach notification regime; for example, it asks for a description of relevant security safeguards in place at the time of breach.”
