Privacy, cybercrime, scams and fraud

One-hour virtual workshop | 5 April 2024.

Large account balances, high transaction volumes and low member engagement make the superannuation industry an attractive and lucrative target for criminals. With the ever-rising risk of cybercrime, hacks and scams, regulators are heightening their focus on cyber resilience, crisis management and operational risk management practices. Following several high-profile data breach incidents over the last few years, the Australian Government has also recently reviewed Australian privacy law and recommended a substantial and wide-ranging set of reforms.

This virtual workshop, facilitated by Kathy Neilson, Partner at Piper Alderman, and Kerry Jacobs, Senior Associate at Piper Alderman, delves into the current fraud, cybercrime, scan and privacy threat landscape of the superannuation industry, and provides insights and practical guidance on how to ensure preparedness for and compliance with the ever-changing applicable legal and regulatory obligations.
