NEWSLETTER: SA Public Sector Newsletter – Issue 19

24 February 2020


Welcome to Issue 19 of the SA Public Sector Newsletter.

Privacy and data protection has featured heavily this fortnight, including the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security conducting a review of the mandatory data retention scheme which has been in place for telecommunication companies since 2017.

We also have updates which highlight the intersection between emergencies and privacy regulation, with the Attorney-General making an Australian Bushfires Disaster emergency declaration under the Privacy Act 1988 and the Australian Communications and Media Authority taking action against 15 telcos for failing to provide vital information that supports Australia’s emergency services.

We also have a number of new Federal Court practicing directions, a consultation paper on proposed amendments to the legal profession uniform law and a number of new regulations at both the Commonwealth and State level.

We hope you enjoy this edition of our public sector newsletter.
