BC FIPA publishes “PIPEDA and Identity Theft: Solutions for Protecting Canadians”

In the summer of 2004, ID theft was a hot issue. Since then, it has exploded.

There has been a flurry of activity in Canada and the United States, as regulators and companies alike struggle to keep up with the rapid growth in this white collar crime. Consequently, while the research has progressed, it has been a constant struggle to keep up with the fast-breaking news events and the subsequent policy and legislative responses of governments. We have focused on providing advice and analysis on how to protect the rights of the individual, through the use of existing law, policy, standards, and management practices.
