The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has started to turn its attention toward sellers of marijuana after its legalization, Bloomberg reports. OPC Communications Advisor Corey Larocque said the agency has focused on the sellers due to payment card and identification card images they collect and the customer images they store from their security cameras. The OPC also has taken notice of the industry after a data breach that involved the Ontario Cannabis Store. While the agency has not launched an investigation into the breach, OPC Senior Communications Advisor Tobi Cohen said it has “been in contact with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario and are also engaging with Canada Post to better understand what occurred and what is being done to mitigate the situation."
