Welcome to Issue 13 of the SA Public Sector Newsletter.
Commonwealth privacy regulation is back in the spotlight this issue, with a new guide released by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner advising on how health service providers can protect patients’ personal information. This is a timely publication following a recent Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation data breach, emphasising OAIC comments that human error is the most common cause of breaches.
On an international front, Australia and the USA are also currently negotiating a bilateral agreement to address cross-jurisdictional requests for service providers to disclose information.
