Privacy & Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (PPIPA)Training
The Crown Solicitor is pleased to announce a new training program, in response to requests from our clients.
The Privacy & Personal Information Protection Act1998 (PPIPA)workshops have been developed to help you understand the full implications of PPIPAin your workplace.
The course will give you the following outcomes:
- a thorough understanding of the key information protection principles ("IPPs") and how they relate to each other
- an introduction to the case law interpreting the key IPPs and how it affects their application in practice
- an understanding of the key differences between PPIPA and the HRIPA
- knowledge of how to apply the key IPPs through practical case studies
- awareness of some common pitfalls in applying privacy legislation and tips on how to avoid them.
The introductory course deals with the following topics:
- the meaning of "personal information" and "health information" and the distinction between the two;
- collection of information;
- use of information;
- disclosure of information;
- conducting an internal review.
Limited to a maximum of 30 people.
The advanced course covers:
- access to and amendment of information;
- retention and security of information;
- exemptions to the privacy principles.
Limited to a maximum of 15 people.
The advanced course is a full day course and assumes knowledge of the material covered in the introductory course (a half day course). A person who was very familiar with the principles in the introductory course could attend the advanced course without attending the introductory course first but generally it is better to attend the introductory course before the advanced.
Like our GIPAA training, the workshops will have a practical focus.
