If you are experiencing a data security breach, call our 24-hour hotline immediately at 800.816.9596.

Data leaks, cyber security attacks, and privacy breaches have become ever more prevalent, affecting businesses of all sizes and across all commercial sectors. In the past, many companies did not have to consider the impact of data protection, cybersecurity, and privacy law on their business. In the digital age, however, businesses cannot ignore the provincial, federal, and international requirements that govern the collection, use, and storage of individually identifiable data.

Businesses that operate wholly or partially in Canada are now governed by complex legal and regulatory frameworks for the storage, use, and protection of private data. There are serious reputational, legal, and financial consequences for organisations that do not comply with the complex legal and regulatory requirements relating to data protection, cybersecurity, and privacy law.

Whether data collection, storage, and use is ancillary to your business purpose or if it comprises a major component of your business, the legal experts in Siskinds’ Data Protection, Cybersecurity, & Privacy Law Practice Group are ready to advise you on how to minimize your enterprise risk while maximizing your organisational goals.
