A year has past since the introduction of Australia’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme and the OAIC has found that data breach notifications have increased by 700% with the health and finance sectors being most affected. There has also been major reforms to privacy laws internationally and some of the world’s leading brands face scrutiny over their privacy policies and practices alongside a number of highly publicised international cyber security incidents. There is no time to waste as data and its protection is what headlines business agendas today.

The Cybersecurity, Data Breach and Data Privacy Forum will address the latest issues relevant to all firms, today. The programme has been acutely researched to highlight the latest technology and strategies in cybersecurity and will discuss how firms are combatting these challenges.
