Cyber Alliance Group industry roundtable lunch

DMAW Lawyers recently hosted a group of leading not-for-profit and disability service providers for a roundtable lunch and discussion led by the Cyber Alliance Group (DMAW Lawyers, Digital Trace Australia and Comunet).

Cyber and information security is particularly vital for not-for-profit and disability service providers due to their handling of sensitive data, reliance on donations, critical service provision, legal obligations, attractiveness as targets, and dependence on technology.

As facilitated by DMAW Lawyers' principal and key member of the Cyber Alliance Group, Paul Dugan, the group discussed common issues facing the industry with respect to cyber security and privacy, touching on recent and impending changes to the Privacy Act, the current threat landscape, the importance of legal professional privilege in protecting investigation outcomes being used against you, cyber incident response and building comprehensive cyber uplift program for their businesses.

The Cyber Alliance Group would like to thank our guests for their interest and keen participation on the day. It was great to have the chance to speak with you about your experiences, concerns and priorities in terms cyber and information security readiness, response and risk management for your businesses.
