Canada's CIOs developing new Standard for Data Ownership

Updated: Mar 3, 2022

The citizens, consumers, and organizations of Canada can look forward to a new tool in their efforts to gain meaningful control over their information.

'Zero-Copy Integration' is a newly-proposed standard being developed by the CIO Strategy Council | Conseil Stratégique des DPI, a development agency of the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).

Supporting Data Owners

The new standard is being designed to empower end users and supply chain organizations with powerful controls over how their information is access and used:

  • Control of data access (granular down to the cell)

  • Control of data stewardship / data custodianship

  • Control of data portability

  • Control of deletion / right to be forgotten

Supporting innovators

In a potentially massive win-win for the Canadian economy, the framework is also intended to provide Canadian developers and service providers with a collaborative framework that offers the following benefits:

  • Accelerated delivery times for new digital solutions

  • Reduced IT overheads and delivery costs

  • Minimized compliance risk e.g. GDPR, CCPA

Join Technical Committee

The draft Standard is now open for comment from Canadian leaders working in the following roles / areas:

  • CIOs, CTOs, CDOs, and CISOs

  • IT and service provider organization CEOs

  • Data Privacy and Data Protection thought leaders
