The 2018 Facebook-Cambridge Analytica saga has shone a glaring spotlight on the inappropriate use of data harvesting. This session examines the obligations on SMEs to protect private data in the context of Australia’s new mandatory data reporting regime, as well as the recently implemented EU data protection regime. It covers:

  • Legal obligations relating to the protection of data in the new regulatory landscape
  • Understanding the data breach reporting obligations
  • Liability for data breaches
  • Ensuring clients have the right infrastructure and procedures in place to ensure data integrity
  • Access of data by third parties, such as IT providers – what needs to be in your agreements to prevent breaches or misuse by others?
  • The new EU Data Protection Regime – when will Australian businesses be caught and what do they need to do now to comply?

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
