Privacy and Data Protection
People care how their personal information is used, much more so in recent times. The Privacy Act 2000 gives individuals significant rights in respect of, and places onerous obligations on organisations that hold, personal information.
We help individuals who believe their privacy rights have been breached. We can also assist organisations to put in place the right processes and policies which meet privacy obligations, and which support good corporate governance. We take the view that meeting these challenges and creating the right privacy environment can deliver real business benefits rather than simply being a compliance burden.
Having the right privacy framework in place will minimise the risk of a complaint, which could otherwise lead to reputational damage and financial claims for damages, or even prosecution and fines. We can assist with building the right framework for your organisation, which could include:
- Privacy audits
- Privacy Policies
- Compliance programs
- Privacy Impact Assessments
- Privacy request management programs
