In a world where lack-of-privacy determines how insta-famous you become and YouTube is full of ‘my makeup routine tutorials’ it might be hard to see how privacy is relevant to the beauty industry. But not everyone is at the salon waiting to get treatment to post for their next Instagram and it’s your everyday customer’s privacy that Lynley Cahill is here to talk about.
Lynley Cahill works as an investigator with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and it’s her daily job to remind agencies why, in such a technology influenced world, they are even more obliged to pay attention to the privacy of their clients. Formerly a family lawyer and police prosecutor, Lynley will bring to Beauty Tech’s 2017 Conference real life case examples of privacy gone wrong and helpful tips and information to inform beauty practitioners what their obligations are under the Privacy Act.
Focussing on the principles within the Privacy Act, Lynley will talk about best practice privacy policies for practitioners. She will also introduce tools on the Office of the Privacy Commissioner’s website, such as AskUs, AboutMe and Priv-o-matic that are free, to help you get privacy savvy.
Make sure you catch Lynley’s presentation, so you know in a world of Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, where the lines of privacy are, because in the words of Kanye, not everyone wants to be “Famous”.
