Privacy Training Webinar (2021)

  (for online privacy training courses, click here)
  (for privacy training for health service providers, click here)


                                           

This webinar provides intensive privacy training on requirements regarding the handling of personal information under the Commonwealth Privacy Act's Australian Privacy Principles (APPs).

The webinar format is new for 2021 and has been developed to enable delivery of in-person training throughout the Covid-19 public health crisis.

The course equips participants with a detailed understanding of:

 •  legal requirements regarding managing personal information under the APPs;
 •  how to apply the laws in practical situations; and
 •  how to identify and manage privacy risks and incidents.

Attendees receive a bound Participant Handbook which contains course materials and provides a privacy reference handbook for future use. Course content is updated annually to remain up-to-date with the latest privacy developments, cases and Commissioner guidelines.

The course is held across 2 x 3 hr webinars (6 hrs total) on consecutive days. Participants are able to communicate directly with the facilitator and other attendees throughout the webinar and participant numbers are limited (equivalent to workshop levels) to ensure optimal class sizes for learning and interaction.

The course can be purchased as a package with the Data Breach Notification Scheme Training Webinar (1 hr), which is held one hour after the conclusion of the Privacy Training Webinar on day two.
