New USA Rules will Affect your Business and Synaptic is the Solution!

The USA has stripped Canadians and other foreigners of the limited digital privacy protections they had enjoyed previously in the U.S. This order has very serious implications for Canadians and Canadian businesses and government.

The USA has declared that federal agencies “shall, to the extent consistent with applicable law, ensure that their privacy policies exclude persons who are not United States citizens or lawful permanent residents from the protections of the Privacy Act regarding personally identifiable information.”

You may not be aware but 90% of internet traffic is routed through the USA, and many technology companies host your data in the USA.  In combination with the USA security acts, which mean that information stored in the USA is subject to their search laws, Canadian information in the USA now has no protection.

Canadian information and technology must be stored in Canada.

Synaptic’s processes keep client information in their home countries.

Synaptic is a 100% Canadian company with using Canadian located technology to keep Canadian information in Canada.  Further for Synaptic’s USA clients, Synaptic uses USA located technology.  Keeping information in the country of the business affords great protection for the owner of that information.

Be safe.  Be secure.  Be sure that the laws you think you are protected by, actually apply to your data.

Choose Security. Choose Excellence. Choose Synaptic.
