January 28, 2020, was a time to celebrate Data Privacy Day. Or, if you are in Europe, it is called, Data Protection Day. What is Data Privacy Day?
On December 10, 2019, the Privacy Commissioner Canada released its Annual 2018–2019 Report to Parliament on the Privacy Act and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
The Privacy Commissioner of Canada has a mandate to protect and promote privacy rights of Canadians, and this includes conducting public opinion research with the general population and also with Canadian businesses on privacy-related issues.
