Privacy Law Update:Right to privacy v Right to safety
Tuesday 9 June 2015
Paper and recording
Length: 1 hour 12 minutes
Cabrini Shepherd Senior Lawyer, Australian Government Solicitor
Donna Mayhew SA Principal Advisor Information Sharing, Ombudsman SA
Simon Froude Acting Director, State Records of South Australia, Dept of the Premier and Cabinet
This seminar will cover the following topics:
. The Commonwealth Legislation Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (which was significantly reformed in March 2014 and concerns protection of an individual’s ‘personal information').
. The Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) – collecting, using and disclosing personal information in the workplace.
. Legal issues concerning social media and privacy
. The Information Sharing Guidelines, looking at policy and practice matters. Given Law Society members may be called on to provide advice about privacy regimes to a range of private and public sector clients – some will no doubt be implementing the ISG, which also aligns with proposed privacy legislation for SA.
