Does HR data processing require registration under data protection laws?
Data protection laws sometimes include conformity assessments, which help to ensure businesses follow regulations. Requirements can include registration before the Data Protection Authority and random audits.
There are no requirements under Canadian laws and regulations around controllers holding personal information specifically; however, individuals must generally be notified in advance of the collection, use or disclosure of their information, and they must be notified of the specific purpose(s) for the collection, use or disclosure.
