Privacy Governance

Privacy Governance

Privacy of personal information is a significant issue for directors and boards. This issue is compounded by new technology that enables many powerful and varied uses for this data, as well as its flow and distribution. Not only must directors and boards comply with the 2014 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), but they also need to demonstrate this compliance.

Privacy Governance: A guide to privacy risk and opportunity for directors and boards, written by former Australian privacy commissioner Malcolm Crompton, focuses on how directors and boards must address privacy in the entities for which they are responsible.

This easy-to-read book includes:

  • An explanation of the 13 Australian Privacy Principles
  • A handy chart outlining the protection of privacy throughout the information life cycle
  • The 'privacy by design' concept
  • Top 10 questions for overall management of privacy
  • Top 10 questions for compliance with the 13 Australian Privacy Principles
