New Zealand: New Privacy Act, New Obligations – What all Businesses Need To Know
Post Date: November 23, 2020
Join us on December 1 for a webinar discussing the new Privacy Act 2020 alongside expert speakers from CMS and ADInstruments.
The Privacy Act repeals and replaces the 27-year-old Privacy Act 1993 and introduces mandatory data breach notification requirements, enhances the powers of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, expands the territorial scope, introduces new criminal offences, and includes additional obligations with respect to processing data overseas.
In this webinar, the speakers will provide an overview of the key reforms and attendees will gain an understanding of:
The main differences between the 1993 and 2020 acts;
An explanation of the new provisions which will have a day to day impact on New Zealand businesses, as well as on foreign businesses doing business in New Zealand or dealing with the personal information of New Zealanders; and
Practical steps businesses should take now to ensure compliance.’
