The Privacy Act Amendments - a Primer for IT Executives
Conclusion: Many IT executives are still unclear as to their obligations under the amended Privacy Act. IT executives should use the Privacy Act as an opportunity to start transitioning into a technical advisor role for their organisation. They should avoid falling into the trap of trying to unravel the Act from a legal perspective. It is paramount that the business understands that while IT can take leadership on a project for compliance with the Privacy Act, compliance is a business obligation and not an IT problem.
