Add to CPD Planner


Recent high profile privacy issues, ‘near misses’ and technological advances have highlighted the need for increased viligence by organisations including law firms. Aside from legal compliance, having a practical understanding of privacy and robust information security processes is one of the best ways to gain the trust and confidence of your clients and customers. Your organisation will also minimise its legal and reputational risk.

Topics covered will include:

  • What is a privacy framework and why is it important
  • What are the strict legal obligations?
  • What kind of issues can arise for lawyers in relation to confidentiality and privacy?
  • Hear about some real-life case studies and how they unfolded
  • How do you establish your own privacy framework and draft a privacy policy?
  • What can go wrong and what do you do if it does?
  • Practical tips to minimise risk to your organisation.

  • Have a greater awareness of your privacy obligations and what can go wrong.
