IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on November 7, 2023
Alberta's Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA), introduced in the Alberta Legislature in May 2003 as Bill 44, is a private sector privacy law that applies to private sector organizations, including corporations, unincorporated associations, trade unions, partnerships, and individuals and non-profit organizations (in connection with their commercial activities). It came into effect on January 1, 2004.
Since then, Alberta’s PIPA has been amended to ensure that the law continues addressing emerging digital data privacy challenges.
The primary purpose of the law is to govern the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information by organizations for ‘reasonable’ purposes while ensuring the rights of individuals to have their personal information protected. PIPA emphasizes the term “reasonable” to encourage organizations to undertake measures appropriate in terms of scale and circumstances.
Thanks to its plethora of data security, privacy, compliance, and governance-related products such as AI-driven data discovery, DSR automation, universal consent management, autonomous documented accountability, data breach management, and vendor risk assessment, Securiti empowers organizations to comply with their legal obligations under Alberta's PIPA seamlessly.
