This law applies primarily to protect the personal information of your employees and your customers. It requires you to identify and document the processes you will use. Heavy fines will be issued in the event of non-compliance with this law, in addition to possibly being sued by the parties concerned.
IMPORTANT: This law is not an option; it is a legal obligation to comply with it!
This law will be deployed over 3 years, in 3 distinct stages. (Below, simplified):
This law will be implemented gradually and applies to all businesses in Quebec, regardless of their size. It will make you aware of the issues and risks of computing today and will have to offer, for the good of all in Quebec, a reliable and secure digital place.
