Privacy Impact Assessment eLearning

A hand opening a book entitled 'Guide to undertaking Privacy Impact Assessments'

A privacy impact assessment (PIA) is a systematic assessment of a project that identifies the impact that the project might have on the privacy of individuals, and sets out recommendations for managing, minimising or eliminating that impact. PIAs are an important component in the protection of privacy, and should be part of the overall risk management and planning processes of organisations and Australian Government agencies.

This eLearning program complements the OAIC’s Guide to undertaking privacy impact assessments, and aims to give you information on conducting a PIA in an easy-to-understand format so that you can have the confidence to do a PIA in your organisation or agency.

Webinar: Privacy policies for GPs

Being open and transparent with patients about how their personal information is handled by your GP practice is one of the best ways to build trust and confidence. It is also a requirement of the Privacy Act 1988. An APP privacy policy is a key tool for meeting APP 1’s objective of ensuring that APP entities manage personal information in an open and transparent way.

A version of this presentation was delivered by Alun Thomas at a webinar on 11 August 2015.

Privacy impact assessment (PIA) workshop slides

Conducting a privacy impact assessment (PIA) ensures privacy compliance is designed into projects dealing with personal information from the start. PIA workshops were held during Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) 2015, geared towards project and information technology managers and privacy contact officers working alongside project teams. Using case studies and practical exercises, participants learnt about the relationship of risk mitigation and corporate governance, the 10 steps to conduct a PIA, mapping of information flows, and developing solutions.
