i-SIGMA Officials Testify in BC’s FIPPA Review Committee

April 6, 2022

On Tuesday, 15 March, i-SIGMA Director Tony Perrotta (Greentec/Ontario, Canada) and i-SIGMA CEO Bob Johnson appeared before British Columbia’s Special Committee to Review the provinces Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).

While the full testimony is linked below, Mr. Perrotta focused on the association’s decades long history of working in Canada and around the world on such regulations, as well as the importance of better defining data destruction requirements. For his part, Johnson focused on the importance of greater enforcement as the most effective way to assure personal information is protected.

As reflected in the testimony, though FIPPA applies only to the provincial government’s access and protection of information, it is essential that the i-SIGMA recommendations be consistent for both the public and private sectors.
