WEBINAR: Victorian Government IT Procurement | Information security and data protection in government IT procurement
Piper Alderman is pleased to offer two online sessions in August, tailored for the Victorian Government with a focus on IT procurement.
Information security and data protection in government IT procurement
Tuesday, 30 August: 12.00pm – 1.00pm AEST
Protecting personal and sensitive information has become increasingly important as threats to data security multiply. This is no less the case in government, where the effective use of information assets is essential to the effective delivery of government services but where information assets are becoming increasingly complex to manage and increasingly vulnerable to attack.
Therefore, when procuring IT products and services, information security and data protection is an essential consideration.
- Overview of the current threats to data security
- Drafting and negotiating contractual protections for data security
- The Victorian Protective Data Security Standards
- Managing privacy and data protection risks with service providers
The webinar will provide you with best practices for managing, and mitigating, the legal risks related to information security and data protection in government IT procurement.
