Overview (Program Summary)

Throughout 2022, we saw extensive regulatory changes and external challenges faced by corporate organisations across all industries. Looking to 2023, we expect to see the impacts of these changes consequently bring novel challenges to watch out for.

In this roundtable discussion, our panel will discuss:

  • A summary of the major enforcement proceedings brought by the ACCC in 2022, and the areas we expect to see further action in 2023
  • Developments in class actions and climate litigation
  • Cyber security breaches from 2022 and how these will impact on 2023
  • AFSL license holders and how cyber security measures interact with the Corporations Act

This session will be relevant for all in-house counsel roles.
