Join this 60-minute online seminar to learn how you can secure your company against data breach. 

Recent changes in our working environment have led to heightened privacy and cyber security risks. As COVID-19 has seen most workers transition to working remotely, organisations are finding it challenging to safely manage personal information and avoid data breach. With working from home likely to be a lasting trend, it is important that organisations are confident in how to address these privacy challenges. 

This practical online seminar will provide attendees with information about their key legal responsibilities in managing personal information, highlighting the significant risks in a work-from-home environment. Attendees will acquire both the tools to avoid a data breach in the first place as well as the fundamental steps to deal with a breach if it does happen. They will also have the opportunity to ask questions through a live Q&A session. 

Key takeaways: 

  • Privacy and cyber security risks to consider in a post-COVID-19 world 
  • How to safely manage and store personal information in accordance with the law and best practice 
  • What your organisation should do if there is a breach of personal, sensitive or health information 
  • Tips for keeping your organisational information safe in a working-from-home context
