Jan. 28, 2011 is recognized as Data Privacy Day by governments,
corporations and privacy advocates in Canada and around the world.
With it comes increased attention on the importance of protecting
personal information and heightened awareness of its value to the
business community and consumers. Distributech has always made our
clients data security a top priority.
The Federal Government has introduced new amendments to
Canada's existing privacy law that affects B2B communications for
purposes of contacting existing and prospective business customers.
This year's mandatory review of Canada's federal privacy law
governing the private sector will also have implications for how
businesses collect, use and transfer personal information.
Details can be found on the
Federal Privacy Commissioner's website.
