[Event] 1.7 million reasons to be ready for the new privacy laws

On 12 March 2014, significant changes to the current privacy laws come into effect requiring organisations that collect “personal information” to change their current practices.

Failure to do so could incur fines of up to $1.7 million.

This may be the last opportunity for you to put in place the required strategies to deal with the protection of privacy in an increasingly digital environment.

On Friday, 22 November 2013, Bartier Perry is holding an intensive half day workshop for organisations to learn what they need to do to ensure compliance with the new privacy laws.

What you will learn at this workshop:

  • A good understanding of the changes and the implications for your organisation
  • The ability to identify privacy issues when dealing with information in the digital environment
  • Strategies to deal with compliance issues and procedures in a digital environment, including resolving any concerns over infringement or potential infringement
  • The opportunity to prepare or update privacy policies and any relevant consent and disclosure forms.

Who should attend?

This workshop is ideal for compliance officers, company directors, company secretaries, in-house counsel and privacy officers.

Cost

There is a nominal fee of $330 (including GST) per person to attend this practical half day workshop.
