The New Privacy Act

What does it mean for your business

Since 2000, privacy laws have expanded rapidly in Australia. Privacy has gone from an overlooked secondary issue to one of increasing importance to all organisations.

Privacy laws are ramping up again with recent significant amendments to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and an increase in fines for non-compliance (up to $1.7 million) meaning that complacency is no longer an option.

How do you quickly get to the heart of the key issues?

At our recent event, Katrina O’Leary, IP legal specialist, discussed:

  • The changes and what they really mean for businesses in Australia
  • The top 5 questions every business should be asking themselves about the storage and handling of personal data
  • The impact of cloud data services and how their use may impact on your responsibilities and liabilities under the Act
  • The options for storage, tracking and reporting to assist in compliance with the new standards
