Procedure for storing, destroying and anonymizing personal information

1. Overview
Implementing a procedure for retaining, destroying and anonymizing personal information is important to ensure the protection of individual privacy, comply with privacy laws, prevent privacy incidents involving personal information and security breaches, maintain customer confidence and protect the organization's reputation.

2. Objective
The purpose of this procedure is to ensure the protection of the privacy of individuals and to comply with legal obligations regarding the protection of personal information.

3. Scope
The scope of this procedure should cover the entire life cycle of personal information, from collection to destruction. It concerns all employees and stakeholders involved in the collection, processing, retention, destruction and anonymization of personal information in accordance with legal requirements and good privacy practices.

4. Definitions
Personal information: any information that directly or indirectly identifies a natural person.
Retention: secure storage of personal information for the required period of time.
Destruction: deletion, elimination or permanent erasure of personal information.
Anonymization: the process of modifying personal information in such a way as to no longer allow it to be identified, directly or indirectly, at any time and in an irreversible manner.

4. Procedure

SET Protocol
Access management - authorized person
Access management - person concerned
Network monitoring software
Computer backup
Login / password

We are committed to maintaining a high degree of confidentiality by incorporating the latest technological innovations to ensure the privacy of your transactions. However, since no mechanism offers maximum security, there is always an element of risk when using the Internet to transmit personal information.

4.3.4 It must be ensured that destruction is carried out in such a way that personal information cannot be recovered or reconstituted.

4.4 Anonymization of personal information
4.4.1 Personal information should be anonymized only if the organization wishes to retain and use it for serious and legitimate purposes.
4.4.2 The chosen method of anonymizing personal information is as follows: it will be deleted after the retention period.
4.4.3 It will be necessary to ensure that the remaining information no longer irreversibly allows the direct or indirect identification of the individuals concerned, and to regularly assess the risk of re-identification of anonymized data by carrying out tests and analyses to guarantee their effectiveness.
Please note that, at the time of writing, the anonymization of personal information for serious and legitimate purposes is not possible. A government regulation must be adopted to determine the criteria and modalities.

Procedure for managing security incidents and breaches of personal information

1. Overview
A response plan is essential for managing cyber incidents effectively. In these moments of crisis, it's not always clear how to act and prioritize actions. A contingency plan reduces the stress of forgetting important things.

2. Objective
The aim of this procedure is to ensure that the organization is ready to respond to a cyber incident so that it can quickly resume its activities.

3. Scope
The scope of this procedure includes all networks and systems, as well as the stakeholders (customers, partners, employees, subcontractors, suppliers) who access these systems.

4. Recognizing a cyber incident
A cyber security incident may not be immediately recognized or detected. However, there may be indicators that a security breach has occurred, that a system has been compromised, that unauthorized activity has taken place, and so on. Always be on the lookout for signs that a security incident has occurred or is in progress.
Some of these indicators are described below:

  1. Excessive or unusual login and system activity, especially from any inactive user ID (user account).

  2. Excessive or unusual remote access within your organization. This may involve staff or third-party suppliers.

  3. The appearance of any new visible or accessible wireless (Wi-Fi) network.

  4. Unusual activity related to the presence of malware, suspicious files or new or unapproved files and executable programs.

  5. Lost, stolen or misplaced computers or devices containing payment card data, personal information or other sensitive data

6. Privacy breach - Specific intervention
If it has been confirmed that a security incident related to a breach of personal information has occurred, the following steps must be taken:

  • Complete the privacy incident log to document the incident.

  • Review the breach to determine whether personal information has been lost due to unauthorized access, use, disclosure or breach, and whether there is a risk of serious harm to the individuals involved

    • In such a case, report it to the Commission de l'accès à l'information au Québec.

    • And, also notify the individuals whose personal information is affected by the incident.

7. Ransomware - Specific intervention
If it has been confirmed that a ransomware security incident has occurred, the following steps should be taken:

  • Immediately disconnect devices affected by ransomware from the network

  • DO NOT DELETE anything from your devices (computers, servers, etc.)

  • Examine the ransomware and determine how it infected the device. This will help you understand how to eliminate it.

  • Contact local authorities to report the incident and cooperate in the investigation.

  • Once the ransomware has been removed, a full system scan should be performed using antivirus, anti-malware and any other latest security software available to confirm that it has been removed from the device.

  • If the ransomware cannot be removed from the device (often the case with stealth malware), the device must be reset using the original installation media or images.

    • Before resetting from backup media/images, check that they are not infected by malware.

  • If data is critical and needs to be restored, but cannot be recovered from unaffected backups, look for decryption tools available at

  • The policy is not to pay the ransom, subject to the stakes involved. It is also strongly recommended to use the services of a breach coach.

  • Protect systems from further infection by implementing patches to prevent further attacks.

8. Account hacking - Specific intervention
If it has been confirmed that account hacking has occurred, the following steps must be taken:

  • Notify our customers and suppliers that they may receive fraudulent e-mails from us, and instruct them not to reply or click on any links in these e-mails.

  • Check whether you still have access to your online account.

    • If not, contact platform support to try to regain access.

  • Change the password used to log on to the platform.

  • If the password is used elsewhere, change all these passwords as well.

  • Enable two-factor authentication for the platform.

  • Delete non-legitimate connections and devices from the connection history.

9. Lost or stolen equipment - Specific intervention
If it has been confirmed that a loss of equipment has occurred, the following steps should be taken:

  • Theft or loss of an asset, such as a computer, laptop or mobile device, must be reported immediately to the local police authorities. This includes loss/theft outside normal business hours and at weekends.

  • If the lost or stolen device contained sensitive data and is not encrypted, carry out an analysis of the sensitivity, type and volume of the stolen data, including any payment card numbers potentially involved.

  • Wherever possible, lock/deactivate lost or stolen mobile devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) and perform remote data wiping.
