As the quantity of customer data being collected increases, so too must the degree of vigilance being paid to prevent a Privacy Breach. We recommend that all staff who are in any way connected with the collection and storage of personal information, undertake training so they are familiar with their obligations under the current Privacy Act.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner offers a suite of online Privacy learning modules including Privacy 101, Health Information, Employment and Privacy, Credit Reporting, Privacy Impact Assessments and Information Sharing Agreements.

There are also several accompanying guides to the modules which can be downloaded. We encourage you to sign up and start obtaining your own certificate(s) here.
