Digital Governance Council has Zero-Copy Integration approved as a standard in Canada
February 8, 2023
Canada’s Digital Governance Council and Data Collaboration Alliance today announced that they have succeeded in getting a new national Zero-Copy Integration standard approved by Standards Canada.
Zero-Copy Integration defines a framework for the accelerated delivery of new digital solutions without eroding data access. Projects covered by the standard include applications, automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and analytics. The standard provides compliance with strict data protection regulations, such as Canada’s proposed Consumer Privacy Protection Act, Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation and the California Privacy Rights Act while also addressing the escalating risk and inefficiency associated with data silos and copy-based data integration.
