As a small business owner, you wear many hats. You’re the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the VP of Marketing and Sales. And of course, you’re also the Chief Information Officer and Chief Privacy Officer. While big business has the budget to keep legal advisers on retainer to deal with privacy issues, this isn’t a likely option for you.
This is one of the major reasons why the Office of the Privacy Commissioner has developed a suite of tools and resources over the years to help you meet your privacy obligations and build trust with your customers and clients.
By running your business, you’re making an important contribution to the economy and your community. And it’s our pleasure to do what we can to make things easier for you. Speaking of which, listed below, you’ll find all of these tools in one place.
