Privacy Landscape - key developments

Privacy Landscape - key developments
Add to CPD Planner



Following the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, there has been increasing scrutiny and proposed reform to privacy and data protection law throughout the world, including in New Zealand with the introduction of our new Privacy Bill. Are you up to date with what’s happening in the fast-changing world of data protection and privacy?

We now live in a world where data is often an organisation’s greatest or most valuable asset. But with the combination of increased consumer awareness and rapidly changing technology, this often presents complex security, privacy and legal implications for businesses. Lawyers in virtually all practice areas must have some understanding of data security and privacy to ensure they can effectively assist their clients in managing this new and rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.

This webinar is an introductory overview of the international landscape and current trends in privacy, and will consider the implications of key case law in New Zealand, discuss New Zealand’s own privacy reforms, and provide practical advice aimed at assisting you in developing and reviewing effective privacy compliance procedures.

Topics covered will include:

  • An overview of what’s happening in the current privacy landscape
  • Proposed reforms to the Privacy Act 1993
  • The impact of GDPR to New Zealand clients
  • Other global trends and international reforms
  • Recent case law and enforcement actions.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will:

  • Have developed an understanding of the key amendments proposed in the Privacy Bill.
  • Understand the implications of the GDPR and how this may impact your clients.
  • Be better placed to advise clients on international trends in the privacy space and their compliance obligations under relevant privacy laws.

Who should attend

All practitioners and support staff.
