HelpSeeker is excited to present our webinar: Privacy Best Practices: Simplifying Social Sector Data Privacy

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
  • Rehabilitation 
  • 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
