Welcome to Privacy Awareness Week 2015

Video transcript

Hello, I’m Timothy Pilgrim and as the Australian Privacy Commissioner, I’d like to welcome you to Privacy Awareness Week 2015 and thank you for your support.

This year’s theme — Privacy Everyday — emphasises the need for organisations to develop a robust privacy culture with privacy by design at the forefront. This is particularly relevant in the online age when organisations are developing practices, procedures and systems in an environment of constant change.

But my message for organisations is that embedding good privacy practice into your daily business-as-usual processes will help you respond to change and to implement best privacy practice.

For that reason, I am pleased to announce the launch our new Privacy Management Framework. I hope this framework will facilitate continuous improvements in information handling practices and assist you to embed a culture of privacy in your organisation.

Thank you for your support and participation in Privacy Awareness Week 2015. I look forward to hearing about your activities during the week, and seeing you at our events this year.
