Since 22 February, businesses have been adjusting to the new requirements of the Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) scheme.
The NDB has been subsequently followed by new requirements introduced in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018.
For businesses that are still grappling with whether the new EU GDPR requirements apply to them, Ai Group will be running a webinar about the EU GDPR and its implications for Australian businesses. We have invited David Smith, Partner at Gadens, who is a specialist in the area of privacy and data security to present and provide businesses with an opportunity to find out more about this new regulation.
Ai Group’s Legal Practice Director, Frances Thomas will also revisit the topic of the NDB in the context of managing data breaches that arise internally, something often forgotten in this conversation.
Concern continues to grow with stories about the apocalyptic rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation, and their threat to businesses, the workforce and broader society.
Businesses are also beginning to ask about the opportunities of new technologies including AI, as well as the workforce required to be ready for this transition.
While it is difficult to predict what will happen in the future, it is important for managers to understand what is happening now and what they need to consider for their business and workforce. Companies like Google are leading the way, making AI a core of its business and has recently set out its own principles for using AI. We have therefore invited industry expert Alex Lynch, Public Policy Manager of Google Australia, to help shed some light on AI and what it means for businesses.
