The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada looks back at the first year of mandatory data breach reporting under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. The agency said it received 680 breach reports over the past year. “It’s a staggering increase and higher than we had anticipated given the experience of our counterparts at the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta when their mandatory reporting laws came into effect,” the agency wrote in a blog post. More than 28 million Canadians were affected by those incidents. The figure includes citizens impacted by the Capital One and Desjardins data breaches.
