Australian privacy regulatory reforms, combined with a rapidly accelerating digitally connected economy arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, mean that it is more important than ever for organisations to make privacy and data protection a top priority.

While organisations are rapidly exploring digital growth, customers are increasingly concerned about the protection of their personal information.

Organisations can stay ahead by embedding data privacy and protection in their practices, building customer trust, and helping to prevent the reputational and financial damage associated with privacy incidents and breaches.
