Cyber attack

Webinar replay: Learning from others' mistakes – privacy & cyber security legal update

On Tuesday 27 August 2019 we held a live webinar on privacy & cyber security.

During the webinar Senior Associate Craig Subocz and Associate Stephanie Quatela discuss some recent high-profile data breaches such as the following:

  • The breach of the Australian Parliament House IT network in February 2019;
  • The breach of LandMark White in February 2019;
  • The Public Transport Victoria breach from 2015 - 2018;
  • The "cyber attack" on Toyota Australia in February 2019; and
  • The Kathmandu data breach in January 2019.

In the webinar we examine these as case studies and see what could have been done differently. 

Watch the webinar replay for an understanding of:

  • What privacy and cyber security looks like in 2019; and
  • Considerations for your workplace when dealing with cyber security.

The Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 received Royal Assent on 2 September 2014.

The new legislation replaces the Information Privacy Act 2000, and the Commissioner for Law Enforcement Data Security Act 2005, with a unified scheme governing the handling of personal information and data by Victorian Public sector agencies.

With the majority of the new arrangements taking effect in December, this seminar will provide public sector lawyers and privacy officers with a concise overview of the changed regulatory landscape.
