Loss of information and accidental disclosure  

In case of an incident where personal information in the custody or control of the University, is treated in a manner that is not in accordance with FIPPA, e.g. e-mailing personal information to the wrong person, loss of unencrypted devices containing personal information, missing USB key, etc., you have an obligation to report this immediately to your manager or departmental chair.  You should also report this to the Faculty’s Freedom of Information Liaison (FOIL), Don MacMillan, 416-978-5894, Consequences can best be controlled with quick intervention.
