New Legislative Requirements on Privacy & Data Breaches

Retirement Living
Brisbane, QLD

We are not taking registrations for this event at this time.


The Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2016 (Notifiable Data Breaches Act) has made amendments to the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) introducing new requirements that most aged care providers will need to comply with in the event of certain breaches of privacy of personal information.

The amendments are due to commence on 23 February 2018 so providers should start preparing their businesses for the changes now.

In this session, Hynes Legal will take you through:

  • the changes;
  • what these changes mean for aged care providers; and
  • how organisations can prepare for the commencement by incorporating the changes into their business.

Attendees will come away from this session with practical advice on the steps they need to take to ensure their business is ready for the upcoming February changes. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask further questions at the conclusion of the session.
