The prevalence of cyber breaches affecting pension plans is increasing. Recent examples include: technology service provider MOVEit in Canada and the US plan administration Capita in the UK.

This session will compare approaches to cyber breaches affecting member pension plan data in Canada, the UK and the US, with a focus on breaches impacting third party suppliers such as those above.

The session will cover the following key themes:

  1. Nature of breaches: similarities and differences in risk depending on jurisdiction and pension plan structure.
  2. Trustee/plan fiduciary/pension provider data breach policies: how to prepare for a cyber breach.
  3. Notification and reporting requirements / procedures: responsible regulators, time limits and scope of reporting.
  4. Consequences of getting the response wrong: the nature and seriousness of potential consequences and sanctions.
  5. Safeguarding against threats: steps available to trustees/pension providers.
