As part of Privacy Awareness Week 2021, the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) is reminding public servants of their responsibility to adhere to privacy requirements when dealing with confidential and personal information. 

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is led by the Office of the Information Commissioner and the CCC fully supports the initiative. This year’s theme, make privacy a priority, reminds us all to value personal information through a better understanding of our privacy rights and responsibilities.

Public sector workers have a responsibility under the Information Privacy Act 2009 (IP Act) to protect and respect personal information.

CCC Chairperson, Alan MacSporran QC, will be giving a keynote presentation at the launch of PAW on Tuesday 4 May, titled “I trusted you with my private information” – Government powers and practices to prevent misuse of personal information.”

The keynote presentation will reflect on lessons from the implementation of recommendations from Operation Impala, and why building a ‘privacy-aware’ culture is fundamental to public trust in government.

    Attorney-General and Minister for Justice

    Minister for Women
    Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence
