New Mandatory Breach Reporting Requirements under PIPEDA

March 20, 2019

On November 1, 2018, amendments to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) came into force which impose mandatory breach reporting, notification and record-keeping requirements on organizations subject to PIPEDA. This includes law firms.

Who Should Attend: This webinar presentation is designed to provide practitioners who do not specialize in privacy law with a primer on the new PIPEDA requirements as well as an update on other cutting edge privacy law topics.

Andrew Buck, an experienced presenter on privacy and data protection matters, will provide answers to key questions regarding PIPEDA, including:

  • What do the recent amendments to PIPEDA change with respect to breach reporting?
  • What constitutes a breach and do I have to report every one?
  • When do I need to notify the person whose information was affected by the breach?
  • What records do I need to keep about a breach?

Andrew will also share privacy law basics on other topics such as:

  • Privacy considerations arising in the employment context - monitoring employee email and internet usage, social media and more.
  • Surreptitious recording - yea, nay or grey?
  • Crossing the border with your laptop or smartphone - what you need to know.
  • Can you store client information in the cloud?

Procrastination and Professional Liability Insurance Claims
February 13, 2019

Procrastination. While we often think of it in relation to our personal goals (remember that shelving project in the garage that keeps getting put off?), the pitfalls of procrastination have an impact in our professional lives as well. In fact, as a lawyer, procrastination can have serious consequences and may necessitate a call to the Law Society’s Professional Liability Insurance Department if it results in a potential claim.

In this one-hour webinar, the Law Society of Manitoba’s Director of Insurance, Tana Christianson, and Professional Liability Insurance Fund Counsel, James Cox, will review why lawyers procrastinate, real life claims caused by procrastination, and  the ethical and practical reasons lawyers should not procrastinate when they become aware of circumstances that may give rise to a claim. Additionally they will share some tips on how to beat this dreaded but oh so common condition.

They will also tell you how those shelves turned out ...
