(Webinar) Risk Management, Cyber Safety & Emerging NDIS Risks

Interesting webinar from the Aon Affinity Not for Profit team.

This webinar covers:

  • Importance of risk management for not-for-profits, community groups and charities, and types of claims we are seeing within the industry
  • Consequences of the changes to the data breach notification laws on not-for-profit organisations and what steps you can be taking, immediately, to mitigate these risks
  • New risk exposures to those who are receiving NDIS funding and organisations/individuals providing NDIS support services.

Presenter: Gavin Deadman

Gavin heads the Aon Affinity Not-for-Profit team, which only deals in insurance and risk management for the not-for-profit sector. He has been part of the Aon group for 28 years and specialises in Affinity programs, designing and managing facilities and schemes. For the past 20 years Gavin has focused on providing tailored insurance and risk management for not-for-profit and charitable organisations, specialising in unique wordings and schemes for these organisations.
