Privacy and the Workplace Course

Kineo’s Privacy and the Workplace course has been developed to provide organisations with an understanding of Australian privacy requirements. It is critical that organisations in Australia understand privacy rights and how the Australian law requires personal information to be protected.

Privacy and your Workplace

Privacy is a person’s right to protect their personal information. Australian Privacy laws outline how an organisation must handle personal information. Personal information is any information or opinion that could reasonably identify a person.

Australian organisations should only collect personal information when reasonably necessary to perform the organisation’s functions or activities. Information should only be used for either  the reason it was collected or in a way related to this reason that the person could reasonably expect. If personal information is held by an organisation; it must be complete, accurate and up-to-date.

A person must know when information about them is being collected. Once personal information is no longer required and not contained in a Commonwealth record, it must be destroyed or de-identified. This is so it does not link to a person.

Understanding Australian Privacy Law

In Australia, privacy is protected by the Privacy Act and the Australian Privacy Principles. These laws are designed to protect people from improper use of their personal information. It’s important that organisations understand the importance of protecting privacy. They should know how to handle personal data and what to do if there are any data breaches.
