A privacy breach is a very real possibility for many organisations. How would you and your organisation respond? How will your decisions affect your impacted customers, your organisation and its reputation?

Join us for a privacy breach hypothetical, where you get to choose your own adventure. 

What's the situation?

The phone rings. After a short pause, a shaky voice on the other end says, "The whole customer database is gone".

What do we do now?

Our panel of experts will help you understand the consequences of your choices, and discuss better practice approaches to manage a privacy breach.

You should attend if you are a:

  • risk manager
  • company secretary
  • chief executive officer
  • human resource team member
  • communications team member.
