WHAT IS THE PERSONAL INFORMATION PROTECTION AND ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS ACT AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR MY COMPANY AND MYSELF TO BE COMPLIANT?

With the new Canadian government legislation, individuals and companies need to be proactive when dealing with their records and documentation. The new Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) is designed to protect the privacy of all personal data that is collected, used and disclosed in the course of commercial activity.

Businesses and organizations are responsible for adhering to 10 principles, each of which is aimed at ensuring proper information security safeguards. The need to confidentially dispose and recycle information has never been more important. In fact, as recommended by the Act, destruction of information must be done in a secure fashion.

Now is the time to review your company’s current policies of confidential record destruction. We invite you to contact us to enable you to achieve your document destruction and recycling requirements.
