The Hicks Post – Data breach low hanging fruit

27 Aug

Paul Broad and I posted our fall edition of the Hicks Morley Information and Privacy Post today. It’s available here. In addition to some brief commentary on “data breach low hanging fruit,” we’ve included summaries of cases that we’ve reviewed since publishing our spring edition. The top draws in our current edition:

  • The Divisional Court’s FOI decision on the annonymization of databases and whether replacing a unique identifier (that is also personal information) creates a new record
  • The Ontario Court of Appeal’s finding that the public interest override in Ontario’s FOI legislation is unconstitutional and its reading-in remedy
  • A decision by labour arbitrator Paula Knopf on a challenge to an employer’s short term disability administration practices
  • The latest Ontario decision in the recent flare-up in drug testing litigation, a decision by labour arbitrator Jane Devlin
  • A June 27th American e-discovery case that illustrates how not to manage a complex e-discovery project

Please check out the Post. Hope you enjoy!
