“From privacy to PIPEDA: Fasken’s Alex Cameron on the issues to note” by Ellen Tannam, SiliconRepublic.com

SiliconRepublic.com quotes Toronto lawyer, Alex Cameron, in an article about PIPEDA, privacy, ompliance and client advice.

Alex Cameron is leader of law firm Fasken’s privacy and cybersecurity group, representing clients including a variety of Fortune 100 and 500 companies.

Cameron said: “PIPEDA rules are that where an organisation has a breach affecting personal information, it must notify individuals and report the matter to the privacy commissioner if the breach gives risk to what is called a ‘real risk of significant harm.’” This risk threshold is, according to Cameron, “quite low in many people’s opinion”.
