    Data and Privacy Protection – Melbourne

    Australian laws relating to privacy have been subject to significant reforms under the Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012, which was introduced on March 12, 2014. This legislation has resulted in a complete overhaul of the credit reporting regime with the introduction of positive reporting and a single, nationally binding set of regulations in the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), which applies to both government entities and private sector organisations.

    The introduction of the Act has resulted in increased powers for the Privacy Commission, including the power to issue fines of up to $1.7 million for significant breaches of privacy and the power to obtain enforceable undertakings from companies and businesses. As a result of these changes, it is vital that businesses implement policies and procedures that reflect the requirements of these new laws, and that staff and management receive appropriate training regarding privacy and data protection.
