Commissioner Releases Privacy Breach Notification Statistics July 1 – September 30, 2018

In our most recent reporting period (July 1 — September 30, 2018), the OIPC received 59 privacy breach reports under the ATIPPA, 2015 from 19 public bodies. This is on par with the 59 reports from 20 public bodies received in the previous reporting period.

Privacy breach reports to the Commissioner are used primarily to allow the OIPC to advise public bodies about the breach response process, to discuss ways to avoid similar breaches and also to target specific issues or public bodies for privacy training.

If any public body would like the OIPC to deliver training regarding privacy breaches, or any other topic relating to access or privacy, contact our Office to arrange a time.
