Leaks, Lies and Videotape - Data Protection 101


Information governance strategies to make sure that your company doesn’t become the next Ashley Madison.

A company’s most valuable resource in the digital age is personal information. The insights a business can generate by analysing data it collects about its customers and their preferences can be game-changing. But boards need to take care: a data breach caused by poor data protection policies and practices can take your company out of the game entirely.

With more people working from home , the data protection and privacy risks have increased significantly.

This seminar will provide a high level overview of a company’s data protection obligations, including privacy, dealing with notifiable data breaches, confidentiality and the new consumer data protection right.

We will take a look at some recent, high-profile data breaches and discuss the privacy implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will consider working-from-home arrangements, Zoom meetings and the COVIDSafe app and identify strategies to mitigate privacy risks in this “new normal”.

An understanding of data protection requirements in Australia including privacy, notifiable data breaches, cybersecurity and confidentiality.
