On March 9, 2015 Canada’s Protecting Canadians From Online Crime Act (Bill C-13) comes into force. This new Act applies to almost everyone, not just to Crown, law enforcement and the haters, baiters and trolls: ISPs, banks and businesses, families, children and adults. In this discussion style webinar, learn about the Act’s new criminal offence and new investigative powers for law enforcement. These include court orders for: preserving computer data, producing transmission data and GPS, producing financial data and warrants to track persons or vehicles. Penalties for persons, financial institutions or entities that contravene these court orders are steep: $250,000 fines and/or 6 months in prison. This new Act also provides immunity from liability for voluntary disclosures to law enforcement by third parties. Find out how this new Act affects your clients, your practice, your family and you.
