OPC posts submission to government’s consultation on cyber security

Today, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) published Commissioner Daniel Therrien’s submission to Public Safety Canada for its Consultation on Cyber Security.

His comments focus on the privacy implications of Canada’s approach to cyber security, as articulated in the consultation workbook, Security and Prosperity in the Digital Age.

The submission focuses on both the need for organizations to safeguard personal information against electronic threats and the importance of guarding against cyber protection efforts infringing on people's privacy.

The Commissioner welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the dialogue and encouraged Public Safety to make privacy protection a guiding principle in its cyber security efforts.
