Data Protection and Privacy laws

Exploring new opportunities based on the new rules


Recognizing the fast pace of technology and its constant evolution, the protection of an individual’s online privacy is a true concern in today’s digital economy. Portage Strategies' mission is to enable organizations with the right tools to address the awareness of the changing landscape of online privacy.

Portage Strategies is committed to providing the highest level of integrity as it relates to the accountability organizations are held to in respect of the collection, processing, and retention of information of an individual.

Portage Strategies, with the consulting services of our partner, Newport Thomson, provides expertise for our clients to come into compliance with most worldwide jurisdictions for data protection and privacy compliance such as CASL, Law 25(Quebec's bill 64), GDPR, CCPA, HIPPA, LGPD, and others.
