It’s been a busy first few months of the year for privacy, both in respect of the ‘bedding in’ of New Zealand’s new privacy law regime and recent developments abroad that may have an impact on New Zealand businesses, particularly those that deal with customers in the EU.
Join privacy experts, Hayley Miller and Campbell Featherstone as they take a closer look at how far New Zealand has really been brought into the modern era of privacy since last December, when changes to the Privacy Act 2020 came into force.
We’ll explore what this has this meant for your business and what it will mean for the future. We’ll also revisit the new obligations enforced by the Privacy Act 2020. Particularly if things go wrong. Most importantly:
• If you experience a privacy breach which could cause serious harm, you’ll need to notify the Privacy Commissioner and may need to notify the affected individuals.
• If you’re transferring personal information overseas you may need to take further steps to ensure the transfer meets the requirements of New Zealand privacy law.
And if things do go wrong, the fines that you could face if you don’t comply with the Privacy Act have increased. As more and more people become aware of the new regulatory environment, and the level of trust that they put in businesses to protect their personal information increases, it’s more important than ever for you to protect your reputation when it comes to privacy.
It is never too late to check that your staff and colleagues understand their obligations, and that your business has the systems and processes in place that it needs to mitigate the risk of something going wrong.
