A number of recent high profile events involving the financial services sector and data security have led to an increased concern around protecting personal information. 

This comes on top of the fundamental reform to Australia’s privacy and data protection landscape – the new mandatory data breach notification regime, which came into effect on 22 February 2018. 

The FSC is excited to bring you the Mandatory Data Breach  Reporting and Privacy Workshop, where a panel of experts will discuss the impact of the new reporting requirements and the modifications that your organisation may be required to implement in order to ensure compliance with the new requirements in this highly sensitive data landscape. This workshop promises to be insightful and practical.
