In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Transport and Communications - May 28, 2014 - Part 1

Industry Minister James Moore’s briefing on Bill S-4 launches the committee’s review of the government’s Digital Privacy Act. Senior department officials Lawrence Hanson and John Knubley also testify.
The legislation aims to improve online protection for Canadians by amending the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, commonly known as PIPEDA. Minister Moore provides details on the five key elements of the bill, including measures to deal with data breaches, to provide new powers to the privacy commissioner, and to create new requirements whenever an organization asks individuals for their approval to collect, use or share their personal information.
