Government as well as quasi-government organizations such as health care providers need to be aware of their privacy obligations and ensure that the personal information belonging to their customers and constituents is protected in an appropriate manner. With individual provincial regulations in conjunction with a collection of federal legislations, the privacy landscape across Canada is highly complex.

If your organization offers services to American government agencies, you may need to also become compliant with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), depending on the nature of the relationship. Canadian government agencies may have similar, albeit less formal, requirements akin to becoming ISO/IEC 27001 certified. Privity’s familiarity with both local and international laws and regulations pertaining to privacy, security, PCI and general compliance make us an ideal partner to consult when embarking on new engagements or reviewing existing organizational processes and structure.
