Privacy and Third Party Software Assistance

BC has the most stringent protection of privacy laws in the world and this has implications for the use of third party (not under BCIT's control) and cloud based software applications. The risk lies in the known or hidden disclosure of identifying and/or confidential information about individuals. Prior to making a decision to use any new software, and especially web-based software that is not running off a BCIT server, a Privacy Impact Assessment must be completed to assess the risk, then a risk mitigation strategy will be implemented should you decide to move forward
