If your organization handles personally identifiable information of any kind, you have likely heard of a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) – a risk assessment framework used to identify and mitigate privacy risks. But do you know who needs to complete one, and who needs a PIA to avoid serious damage to their organization?
FACT: A PIA is best practice for every organization in the digital age.
Does your organization provide services that deal with:
- The protection, promotion, or assistance dealing with maintaining physical and mental health
- Illness prevention, the diagnosis and treatment of illness
- Care for the health needs of the ill, disabled, injured or dying
If so, according to provincial and federal regulations, your organization needs a PIA. But don’t worry, this webinar will show you how the first step towards securing your clients information is reviewing the current state.
A PIA will help your organization: 1) Improve compliance; 2) Expose risk; 3) Evaluate protections and alternative processes to mitigate potential privacy risks.
An overwhelming majority of Canadians (92%) say they are concerned about their privacy, and the average cost of a data breach for organizations in Canada is $6.7 million. Having robust privacy practices, especially when it comes to the collection, storage, and sharing of an individual’s private and personal information is not only a requirement – it is essential in ensuring public trust, and critical for the future operations of every organization in the digital age.
In this webinar, you will learn:
What a PIA consists of and the process to complete one
Why a PIA is best practice for any organization, and if you are mandated to complete one
How a PIA can be used to optimize your internal processes to greatly reduce risk and protect the individuals you serve
What to do with the information you gain from completing a PIA

George has an extensive background in the area of privacy and information sharing. He has 35+ years of experience working for the Government of Alberta, the first half in various social service programs. As Director of an Information Privacy Office, he was responsible for providing privacy management services for multiple public bodies across a number of government ministries. That work often required assisting different areas in working through the complexities of the legislation, and led to some of the initial work on sharing information to support collaboration.
During the latter part of his career, he was responsible for leading the development and implementation of the government’s Information Sharing Strategy, which required a broad knowledge of the various pieces of privacy legislation in Alberta, along with a deep understanding of their impact and implications and how to make sense of them at the delivery level. George has presented at numerous conferences on the subject of privacy and information sharing, and since retiring from government, is working as a consultant in the area.Read MoreLess
