The Australian Government is reviewing the Privacy Act 1988 to ensure privacy settings empower consumers, protect their data and best serve the Australian economy.

The Privacy Act review examined potential reforms that, if implemented, would likely have far reaching consequences for all organisations that collect and use customer data. This includes significant expansions to what is considered personal information and greatly increased consumer rights.

This webinar will cover key issues for the insurance industry arising from the review, including:

  • Impacts on how data is collected, stored and used
  • Consequences for existing liability products, including cyber liability
  • Potential for expanded policy coverage

For further information about this professional development program, please contact Melanie Hansen, Event Manager.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the context and details of the options for reform to the Privacy Act
  • Describe how customer data is used in modern direct insurance operations and how changes to the Privacy Act may impact these operations
  • Recognise potential underwriting impacts on existing products and potential to underwrite new products
