Data collection and use is increasingly important for a wide range of public and private sector entities. There are a range of different regulatory regimes that must be complied with to ensure that, for example, personal information is collected and managed appropriately, data sets are able to be made available by public sector entities and the like. Understanding these rules and how they intersect and apply is critical.
We have put together a Q&A resource that answers some common questions relating to Australia’s national regulatory framework for privacy and the use, reuse and sharing of public and private sector data. In addition to information on privacy regulation, we touch upon issues such cybercrime, the liability of intermediaries, data portability and open data. This resource has been designed for individuals of all levels of experience, whether you’re an in-house lawyer looking for a refresh or you work with data and want a better understanding how the law may apply to your role.
