Align with the new Australian Privacy Principles to avoid privacy breaches, massive financial consequences and reputation destruction.

From 12th March 2014 the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) came into effect. Government and private organisations within Australia will be regulated for the handling of personal information by Australian Government agencies and businesses with a turnover of more than $3 million. Or those trading in personal information and all private health service providers. There are also new regulatory powers for the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), including the power to conduct a privacy performance assessment, accept an enforceable undertaking and, in the case of serious or repeated breaches, seek civil penalties.

We can help you.

  • Align to the new Australian Privacy Principles.
  • Avoid making costly mistakes.
  • Protect your companies reputation.

The world has changed remarkably since the late 1980s when the Privacy Act was first introduced 25 years ago, hence changes were required to bring Australian laws up-to-date with contemporary information handling practices, including global data flows.

The new laws require businesses and Australian Government agencies to be more transparent about how they handle personal information including  a clearly expressed and up-to-date privacy policy (that is implemented) about the way they handle personal information.

Stickman can help you take proactive action and guide you through the process by way of a full assessment to the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) and uncover what is applicable and not-applicable to your organisation and how best you can address and align to the principles. To get a better understanding please contact Stickman to organise your free Australian Privacy Principles Workshop that will give you an opportunity to learn more about the principles and ask any questions to a qualified expert.
