Do you want to contribute to the fight for better privacy protection in Australia? Are you unsure about where to start, or what to focus on? Come along to an interactive workshop session hosted by Digital Rights Watch to guide you through the process of making a submission.

The Attorney-General’s department is currently seeking feedback on their suite of proposals for reform to Australia’s Privacy Act. Opportunities for meaningful privacy reform don’t come around often, so it’s essential we use this opportunity to get privacy right.

Invading our privacy is big business, and we expect companies to spend big on watering these reforms down. We need to be vigilant and keep up the pressure to ensure this chance to secure real privacy reform isn’t wasted.

In this lunchtime session we’ll:

  • Discuss the proposals contained within the Privacy Act Review Report

  • Give an overview of DRW’s position, what we think is important to cover in a submission and answer questions about the process

  • Consider the questions posed in the AG’s survey

No prior experience in privacy is necessary, we will respond to the needs of the group and there will be lots of chances for questions and discussion.
