Data protection and cybersecurity

Cyber security and data privacy are key concerns for modern medical practices of all kinds, including dental. Given our reliance on information technology it is increasingly important we are aware of cyber and data risks and how to respond when things go wrong.

In this session Murray Grant, a lawyer in Wotton + Kearney’s cyber and data risks practice, will address:

  • common cyber and data threats and how to identify them;
  • how to respond when you experience a cyber or data incident;
  • case examples illustrating cyber and data incident response in practice;
  • the requirements of the new Privacy Act 2020, that came into force on 1 December 2020.

This session will provide practical examples and tips that should help you identify common cyber and data risks and equip you with knowledge to help you respond.
