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.

What compliance issue keeps you up at night? Chances are it is privacy and security related and you are not alone. An American survey of General Counsel in 2016 found that data breaches were a top issue for 59% of those surveyed.1 We hope this webinar may help to ease the worry and form a useful part of any busy privacy officer’s tool box.

The task of establishing and maintaining a positive privacy culture and effective framework can seem daunting. However, setting up a privacy framework for your organisation does not need to be an overly academic process layered with complexity. The key ingredients are simply a sound knowledge of the Information Privacy Principles and obligations under the Privacy Act 1993, a sprinkling of common sense and a genuine commitment to treating the personal information people entrust to your organisation with care.
