Privacy Awareness in Children’s Services


What does privacy look like in children’s services - and how can educators ensure they’re not in breach of the Privacy Act (1988)? This on-demand webinar examines through case studies, aspects of the Privacy Act, including the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme, as well as ways services can maintain privacy and what is defined as sensitive information.

 This webinar will:

  • Increase your understanding about maintaining privacy in children's services.
  • Increase your knowledge of the important changes to the Privacy Act (1988), in particular the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme implemented from 22 February 2018.
  • Develop an understanding of the strategies that support maintaining the privacy of children, families and staff.  

 This webinar does not provide professional advice nor should replace advice sought from the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
