Integrity Advocate has released their 2022 PIPEDA compliance brief. The purpose of this brief is to help organizations understand whether their proctoring solution meets PIPEDA standards and requirements. The purpose of PIPEDA is to ensure that personal information is obtained in ways that respect the fundamental right to privacy. Many organizations rely on personal information to stay in touch with their customers or clients, and to better understand how their customers are using their products and services in order to meet their needs. Ensuring that personal information is kept private is a good practice in any case, as it demonstrates respect and consideration.
Online education services are challenged with providing a participation monitoring and proctoring service that incorporates not only the best possible user experience with robust integrity controls, but also adheres to the required privacy protection for learners. Integrity Advocate has demonstrated compliance with PIPEDA, allowing for organizations to utilize the online monitoring services with confidence that the intent of PIPEDA — as described in the 10 key principles —has been met.
