Toronto and Helsinki, January 27, 2021 /PR/ Corporate and consumer privacy protection has changed in the age of COVID-19. From calibrating business data collection to determining the impact of contact tracing, public interest in privacy during the pandemic has soared. According to Statistics Canada, COVID-19 has had a transformational impact on communities, with excess mortality statistics, mental health and consent abuses rising in a short period of time. (MPC) has based its latest privacy report on key numbers available from Statistics Candada’s data dashboard to determine the following corporate trends:

  • Increased data inventory activity
  • Added scrutiny of vendors and service providers
  • Requirements for on-demand privacy expertise

MPC’s Director of Privacy Compliance and Partnerships Amalia Barthel, CIPM, CIPT, CDPSE announced the integration of PrivacyAnt Software is a scalable SaaS solution that offers a cloud hosted privacy dashboard into the company’s suite of privacy management solutions: “With this alliance, ManagedPrivacy Canada is excited to offer corporate clients a new, next generation privacy dashboard that facilitates privacy assessments, data inventory and breach investigation activities.”

Based in Helsinki, Finland, PrivacyAnt Software offers a digital dashboard that offers single pane visibility into corporate privacy initiatives and supports the privacy function with integrated visuals. PrivacyAnt Co-Founder and CEO Jane Tahvanainen: “Our platform is built for assessing how your different products, services and processes comply with the selected criteria, and to design new ones with our privacy engineering module. All documentation is linked together so you can see immediately how different changes in your processing activities will impact the privacy of your customers, clients or employees.”
