In August 2016, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) released their joint Report of Findings from their investigation following the breach of AshleyMadison.com, operated by Avid Life Media (now Ruby Corp.). This investigation has been referred to as a "benchmark for future investigations", due to the OPC investigation's "clear, precise and targeted" analysis of the organization's practices in relation to Canadian privacy law. Importantly from a compliance perspective, the Report provides numerous key takeaways for all organizations that hold significant amounts of personal information, touching on safeguards, information governance, information retention, transparency, and more.
As the release of these findings has garnered high interest, the OPC is hosting this information session - the second in a series, following the successful August 2016 discussion of the OPC's CompuFinder investigation - to facilitate a timely and compliance-enhancing discussion with organizations and key stakeholders.
The discussion will be led by members of the OPC Investigative team, including:
- Brent Homan, Director-General, PIPEDA Investigations
- Amanda Edmunds, Manager, Complaint Intake, PIPEDA Investigations
- Joel Scott-Mignon, Senior Investigator - Breach Response Officer
- Manon Hardy, Legal Counsel
- Steven Johnston, Senior IT Research Analyst
Attendees will get:
- An Overview of the OPC and Australian OAIC’s investigative findings and the resulting compliance agreement
- Key Takeaways for all organizations
- Understanding of the international collaboration and joint investigation process
The speakers will also be available following the session to answer any further questions attendees may have.
