SWIFT probed for leaks

This London Free Press article by David Canton includes:

A complaint has been filed by the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) under PIPEDA alleging that the six largest Canadian banks have failed to protect personal customer financial information from inappropriate disclosure by SWIFT. CIPPIC says Canada's big six banks all use SWIFT to process international money transfers. Even though it is SWIFT that is distributing the information, the banks do not escape liability and remain responsible under PIPEDA.
