About SFU's Privacy Management Program
The mission of Simon Fraser University’s Privacy Management Program is to enhance the University’s accountability as a public body entrusted with vast amounts of personal information about its students, employees, alumni, and other third-party affiliates. SFU has both an ethical and legal obligation to safeguard personal privacy.
Section 36.2 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) requires B.C. public bodies (such as the University) to develop a privacy management program (PMP).
The Privacy Management Program Directions (PMP Directions), issued by the minister responsible for FIPPA, describe the mandatory components for PMPs. Taken together, these components enhance the University’s overall accountability to its students, employees and other stakeholders while also promoting and enhancing trust in the individuals for whose personal information we are responsible.
The relevant components of the PMP Directions are:
1. DESIGNATING A PRIVACY CONTACT PERSON
The University has designated a privacy contact person as the point of contact for privacy-related matters such as privacy questions or concerns.
For all general queries contact the Privacy Management Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all additional privacy role delegation information please see:
2. PRIVACY IMPACT ASSESSMENTS AND INFORMATION-SHARING AGREEMENTS
The University has a process in place for completing and documenting Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) and Information-Sharing Agreements (ISAs).
For all general queries regarding PIAs and ISAs please contact the Privacy Management Program at email@example.com
For further information regarding PIAs please see Privacy Impact Assessments.
3. PRIVACY COMPLAINTS AND PRIVACY BREACHES
The University has documented processes in place to respond to any privacy breaches and complaints.
For all general queries regarding privacy breaches and complaints please contact the Privacy Management Program at firstname.lastname@example.org
For further information on privacy breaches and complaints please see: Handling Breaches and Making Complaints
4. PRIVACY AWARENESS AND EDUCATION ACTIVITIES
The University has developed privacy training to help employees identify personal information and understand their privacy obligations.
For all general queries regarding privacy training please contact the Privacy Management Program at email@example.com
5. MAKING PRIVACY PRACTICES AND POLICIES AVAILABLE
The University has made its privacy policies and any documented privacy processes and practices available to employees and to the public.
