With the passing of new legislation imminent and suggestions of substantial fines being imposed in certain cases, privacy breaches are more relevant to lawyers and their clients than ever before.
This On Demand seminar considers how to avoid privacy breaches and the implications of a breach under the Privacy Act 1993 in its present form as well as addressing likely future changes including mandatory reporting. It also explores the very real issue of cybersecurity facing lawyers and their clients.
- Learn more about voluntary breach notification under the Privacy Act as it presently stands, why you should notify the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and how to manage your relationship with the Office. Through case studies relevant to both the private and public sector, learn about breach management plans and what you should and should not do in the event of a breach, as well as the intersection between privacy compliance, governance and risk management and oversight.
- Understand better the requirements of overseas data breach notification regimes (such as those in Australia and the EU, including the GDPR), what is currently being proposed and the steps that need to be taken to comply with the regimes including the consequences of not notifying the relevant bodies in the event of a breach.
- Gain insights into what the future under an amended Privacy Act in New Zealand might be like including mandatory breach notification, steps to compliance and what will happen if you or your client fails to notify. Also discuss what needs to be done before sending information offshore and the new enforcement measures, including access determinations and compliance orders.
