Data Breach Notification Scheme Training Webinar (2021)

 (for training for health service providersclick here)


This webinar provides training on the requirements of the Data Breach Notification Scheme (DBN Scheme) under the Commonwealth Privacy Act.

The DBN Scheme requires organisations that suffer a serious data breach to notify the Commissioner and individuals of the incident. The requirements have a major impact on how organisations are required to manage incidents and the ramifications of breaches.

The course equips participants with a detailed understanding of:

•  the DBN Scheme requirements;
•  governance mechanisms required to meet obligations;
•  how prompt remedial action can prevent notification requirements being triggered;
•  how to apply scheme requirements in real-life scenarios;

•  issues to address in supplier and client contracts.

Attendees receive a bound Participant Handbook which contains course materials and provides a DBN Scheme reference handbook for future use.

The course can be purchased as a package (50% discount) with the Privacy Training Webinar (which concludes one hour prior). Each course must be registered for separately (with discount coupons for the DBN Scheme course - see below).
