To mark Privacy Awareness Week, O*NO Legal – The Real Estate Agents’ Lawyer has redesigned its highly popular, free privacy webinar to help frontline real estate professionals who deal with personal information.
In the past, O*NO Legal’s privacy webinar has largely targeted what principals need to know, but this time it is for real estate agents, property managers and other frontline team members who want legal clarity on data breaches and privacy complaints.
O*NO Legal Founder Kristen Porter said in the digital age, and with real estate agencies handling large amounts of personal information, understanding your legal obligations around privacy, and what to do if there’s a breach, has never been more important.
“In the age of highly publicised data breaches, increasing privacy complaints and ever-rising fines of up to $50 million, you can’t afford to not be privacy prepared,” she said.
“So if you want to protect your agency’s reputation and find clarity on what to do in the event of a data breach or privacy complaint, this free webinar will explore why privacy preparedness is critical for real estate agencies and what steps you can take to safeguard your client’s personal information.”
The free webinar will also cover:
- rules around how you collect data on the front line in real estate;
- how to identify a privacy data breach and what you need to do about it;
- how to handle privacy complaints;
- common privacy questions we get asked;
- how our real estate agency law experts can help you.
Ms Porter said with Privacy Awareness Week starting on May 1, O*NO Legal decided to run its Privacy Prepared 2.0 webinar for free again to help the real estate industry get up to speed and feel confident on privacy matters.
“We have redesigned our annual Privacy Prepared webinar to be most relevant for your frontline staff,” she said.
“Anyone in real estate that handles personal information will benefit from this session.
“The team at O*NO Legal understands that privacy can be a complex and challenging topic, and they want to make it as easy as possible for you to understand and implement best practices in your agency.
“During the webinar, you’ll have the opportunity to have your questions answered by one of O*NO Legal’s experts, so if you’re unsure about a particular aspect of privacy compliance, this is your chance to get the guidance you need.”
The free Privacy Prepared 2.0 webinar will run on May 4, 2023 at 11am AEST.
“If you can’t make it live, don’t stress, register anyway and you will be sent the recording to watch later, at a time that suits you,” Ms Porter said.
“Whether you’re looking to learn about privacy compliance for the first time or you want to refresh your existing knowledge, this webinar is the perfect opportunity to get up to speed and aware of the steps you can be taking to start protecting your agency today and have a clear understanding of what it takes to be privacy compliant in the real estate industry.”
