Data Breach Notification Scheme Training Workshop (2018)

NOTE: This workshop is preceded by a Privacy Training Workshop on the same day.


This workshop provides training on the requirements of the new mandatory Data Breach Notification Scheme ("DBN Scheme") under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) commencing on 22 February 2018.

The course will equip participants with a detailed understanding of scheme requirements, including how to:

•  assess whether a breach triggers notification obligations;
•  criteria on which to base decisions;
•  apply the scheme in real-life data breach scenarios;
•  develop compliance measures;
•  seamlessly incorporate such measures within an existing privacy compliance framework or
    data breach response plan.

Attendees receive a DBN Scheme Guide & Toolkit (used through-out the workshop) containing:

•  detailed guidance on scheme requirements and how to apply them;
•  Flowchart of scheme requirements to identify obligations;
•  Model Data Breach Notification Statement;
•  Template Data Breach Notification Statement;
•  Checklist of issues to cover in contractor agreements;
•  Sample clauses for in contractor agreements;
•  Overview of key elements of a Data Breach Management Framework, including:
    > Data Breach Response Management Policy;
    > Data Breach Response Plan.

To assist organisations currently developing compliance measures prior to the 22 February 2018 commencement date, attendees will be sent the DBN Scheme Guide & Toolkit at the time of registration (to be brought to the workshop).
