Webinar: Privacy and Child Safety: Managing Competing Obligations

Date: 08 Sep 2020

Childsafety 1

Navigating between competing obligations is always tricky, but the stakes are particularly high when privacy and child safety come into conflict. This conflict has been heightened by an increasingly remote world, leading to the collection of significant amounts of personal information belonging to children. Failure by organisations to adequately consider the crossover between these two important considerations create a risk of breach of privacy, defamation and further child safety concerns.

This webinar, presented by our legal partner Moores, will help you:

  • Understand your privacy and child safety obligations
  • Understand the interaction between these two sets of obligations
  • Protect the privacy of children - particularly in relation to taking and using photos, recording remote lessons or interactions with children and releasing information.
  • Navigate key scenarios including:
    • Child safety investigations
    • Reporting child safety concerns
  • Work through case studies and recent learnings.

Presenters: Moores Practice Leader, Skye Rose, and Lawyer, Rena Ou Yang.

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
