People often associate “Data Security” with complex technical requirements and confusing legal concepts. Understanding the basics of Data Security is important in our day-to-day lives and as part of the organisations we work within. Our Data Security (video) Series demystifies some of the key legal concepts associated with Data Security, touching on several key data security topics such as Personal Information, Health Information, the Consumer Data Right and Data Breaches.

The videos are short, informal, and shot in a Q&A format. They are intended to be easily digestible, with the aim of further educating those who do not deal with data security on a day-to-day basis, or who may want a refresher on a particular aspect of data security that may be relevant to their business.
