Cross Border Travel & Protecting Client Information
There was a time when the average person crossing the border only had to be concerned about what they purchased and if they didn't go over their cigarette or alcohol limits. Since 9/11 that has changed dramatically. There have been and will continue to be new restrictions imposed at the border that affect all travelers.
Although certain restrictions have come into effect primarily from the concern of terrorism, the impact extends much further. Both the Canadian Border Security Agency and the US Customs Border Protection have adopted practices that have not necessarily kept pace with technology which thereby may not be in keeping with Canadian or US privacy law. We will look at how things have evolved for global travelers and what best practices will help ease the border passage.
Our presentation looks at the issues travelers face when crossing borders.
1) Overview of the historical and current status of security at border crossings.
2) What are the individual rights upon entry & exit?
3) What can the Border Agents look at/access when it comes to electronic devices?
4) How can individuals protect privileged information?
5) Considerations for firms and individuals for best practices when managing privileged information.
