GOVIS Lunchtime Forum - What does the new Privacy Act mean for government ICT? (Rescheduled)

*** Rescheduled ***

Fri, August 21, 2020, 12:00 PM – 1.00 PM, Online event.

After 27 years, we have a new Privacy Act! The changes include mandatory reporting of privacy breaches, a new Information Privacy Principle strengthening controls on information going overseas, and new enforcement powers for the Privacy Commissioner. The aim of the new legislation is to encourage agencies to be more proactive about privacy - to identify risks and prevent incidents that could cause harm.

What does the new Act mean for government ICT? What changes might be needed to our systems and processes? What are the key things you need to be thinking about in order to prepare? This forum will help you to answer these questions.

So come and join us on 21st August. We’ll be hearing from John Edwards the Privacy Commissioner.
