About the Series

New technologies and changing regulations are transforming NZ businesses. Keeping on top of the legal implications can be challenging. This technology, law and business webinar series looks to provide some practical guidance to practitioners around selected legal issues in relation to technology and its use: DATA: The New Oil (use, protection and privacy considerations); Cybersecurity and the Law (cybercrime, its prevention and associated customer requirements); and Moving to the Cloud Services (recognising and addressing key legal issues when moving to the cloud).

About this Webinar

Technology has changed the game and data is now one of the most valuable resources a business may have. The lawful collection and use of personal information is critical for any business to stay competitive. Proposed changes to NZ privacy laws and the coming into force of the EU General Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have a substantial impact on how data is used and stored. This webinar will provide:

- a refresher on the obligations under the Privacy Act and the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act;
- an overview of the upcoming Privacy Act reform; and
- an overview of how the GDPR may affect New Zealand businesses.

What’s in it for attendees?

Having attended the webinar attendees will be able to identify the key legal issues surrounding the collection and use of personal information by businesses.

Who is this webinar for?

General practitioners and in-house counsel who are not specialists in this area and need a basic understanding of the Privacy Act and Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act, and the impact of GDPR on NZ businesses
