Let’s see if my little blog can help promote an event in New Zealand. From their privacy commissioner’s site:
2018 Privacy Forum
This is a significant year for privacy in New Zealand. Our 25-year-old Privacy Act is set to be reformed and new privacy legislation put in its place. What is likely to change with the new Privacy Act? What do organisations and businesses need to know? What does mandatory data breach notification mean? These will be some of the main talking points at the Office of the Privacy Commissioner’s 2018 Privacy Forum at Te Papa in Wellington on Wednesday 9 May 2018.
Don’t delay in registering for this one day only event. Other topics for discussion will be the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which takes effect in May, and also how algorithms affect our daily lives.
Come and hear some of the leading experts on privacy and data protection in Australasia at the 2018 Privacy Forum. The Forum will be opened by the Minister of Justice, Andrew Little, and the day will end with the launch of the Privacy Commissioner’s Privacy Trust Mark.
