Just got word from the “CMA”:http://www.the-cma.org that they have produced two new resources for navigating the murky waters of privacy in Canada. Here’s the scoop:
bq.. The Canadian Marketing Association has published two new privacy guides that are designed to help small and medium-sized Canadian businesses better understand and comply with the provisions of the federal Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act. Both publications are available on the CMA Web site.
*Privacy Models that Work — A Guide for Canadian Organizations* — includes perspectives from chief privacy officers at more than a dozen leading Canadian organizations on how the privacy function is positioned in their organization, processes and key roles and responsibilities.
*Best Practices in Data Management — A Guide for Marketers* — is based on best practices in data management at some of the top companies in Canada. The guide covers four key areas: collecting, using, safeguarding and sharing data.
Funding for these projects was made possible through a $50,000 grant under the Contributions Program established by the Federal Privacy Commissioner.
