Organized by ARAISA and the Société Nationale de l’Acadie (SNA) these May 2024 Cybersecurity and Data Protection webinars aim to raise awareness of privacy and data security principles, focusing on safeguarding client information and complying with provincial privacy laws. Both webinars are useful for all. Part 2 covers specific Atlantic region legal frameworks.

Session 1 covered:

  • Introduction to Cybersecurity Principles: best practices for secure online behavior and recognizing and mitigating common cyber threats. 
  • Training on Data in the Sector: understanding the types of data handled in the settlement and integration sector. 
  • Techniques for securing sensitive information and highlighting the consequences of data breaches. 

Session 2 covered:

  • Legal Frameworks for Digital Security and Privacy in the Atlantic regions: an overview of the legal landscape, presentation of differences in provincial privacy laws, and the legal responsibilities of organizations and individuals.   
  • Organizational and Institutional Policies: how to develop and implement data security policies, integrate data security into existing organizational frameworks, and establish protocols for incident response and reporting. 

I'm unable to embed the video for session 2 here, you can view it on the ARAISA site.
