Privacy and Data Protection
Privacy protection in Australia is becoming increasingly important. Individuals living in the digital age want to have some control, choice and understanding of how governments and businesses handle their personal information.
The most significant reforms since its inception in 1988, the Privacy Act (Cth) has recently been amended with sweeping changes that will come into effect on the 12th of March 2014. 13 new Australian Privacy Principles will apply uniformly to government and businesses with an annual turnover in excess of $3 million, as well as credit reporting agencies and health service providers.
