Preparing for PIPEDACrowdStrike's Charlie Groves on What Organizations Need to Prioritize for Compliance
A key amendment to Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act goes into effect on Nov. 1. What are the baseline standards for compliance, and how does this change impact risk transfer and mitigation? Charlie Groves of CrowdStrike shares his views.
"It's important to understand that PIPEDA is not a new law; it's been on the books for a long time," says Groves, who is CrowdStrike's global director of business development. "What is coming at us here is an amendment that will be effective on Nov. 1 and which now creates a whole new set of provisions around breach notification."
In an interview about how to prepare to comply with PIPEDA, Groves discusses:
- PIPEDA's impact on the Canadian landscape;
- Baseline data protection standards to be met;
- The role of cyber insurance in PIPEDA compliance.
Groves is the Global Director of Business Development at CrowdStrike focused on the legal and insurance verticals. As a licensed attorney with more than 20 years of experience, he has spearheaded numerous cyber risk management programs that combine risk mitigation capabilities of cybersecurity products and services with risks transfer features provided by cyber insurance.
