TORONTO, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - A leading privacy research and data protection

Commissioner of Canada('OPC') to conduct a research project on Incident
Reporting to the OPC.
Led by John Jager, CIPP/C, Nymity's Vice President of Research Programs,
the project will examine how organizations are currently interacting with the
voluntary notification guidelines. Interviews conducted with leading privacy
officers across Canada will focus on a range of topics including:
i)the impact of mandatory reporting if proposed amendments to PIPEDA are
enacted and ii) the process that organizations are using to determine when to
notify the Commissioner's office when they have experienced a breach.

will help the OPC gain an understanding of the challenges Canadian companies
may face when determining if notification to the OPC is appropriate. It also
provides companies and privacy professionals an opportunity to identify key
issues and opportunities relating to an effective mandatory reporting
environment. Nymity has conducted extensive research in the area of breach
management and we are very pleased to be working with the OPC on this
important and timely study."
