The Digital Governance Standards Institute (DGSI) is proud to announce the approval of the CAN/DGSI 109-2: 2024, Privacy – Part 2: Canadian Information Privacy Protection Framework. This new publication is a crucial benchmark for organizations across Canada in safeguarding sensitive information and ensuring compliance with relevant legislation and treaties.

CAN/DGSI 109-2:2024 establishes a comprehensive framework for organizations to harmonize conformance with provincial/territorial, federal, and international regulations. Organizations will be able to navigate the complex landscape of privacy compliance with clarity and confidence.

“In an era of heightened concerns surrounding data privacy, the implementation of standardized practices is paramount to fostering trust among Canadians. This new standard aims to address these concerns by providing organizations with a jurisdictional and technological agnostic approach, recognizing the diverse needs across industries and sectors. It will also offer guidance to enhance data privacy management practices.”
