Background on the Quebec data retention subscription
In Quebec, it is key to get control over your data to comply with applicable laws. The Quebec data security breach notification legislation and proposals for privacy laws lay down the principles of handling data. It is more important than ever to know which data to retain, and for how long and which data to delete. Especially since Quebec requires the storage of certain data categories for surprisingly deviating periods than you may expect.
The filerskeepers Quebec data retention subscription currently contains:
- Over 1007 Quebec data retention periods
- Information about who should keep what data, for which time period, starting when, it is a maximum or minimum period
- All with a legal reference and a link to the official legal source
- Printer friendly format, designed for A4 printing
