Description

In Australia, like the rest of the world, privacy matters. This course is about Australian privacy law awareness. You’ll learn how to protect your personal information privacy. And, you’ll explore key workplace information privacy concerns.


The Australian privacy law – awareness course

  • Identifies Australian federal and state privacy legislation

  • Helps protect your personal information privacy

  • Explores key workplace information privacy concerns


Australian privacy law – awareness

Your personal privacy is important. It helps you attain autonomy and maintain individuality. However, there are concerns about gathering, storing, using and sharing personal information.


Globally, privacy laws are changing. Legislators are trying to find a balance between personal privacy, security and overall societal benefit. Of course, Australian privacy is no exception.


This awareness course addresses three privacy topics.

1. Federal & state legislation – outlines federal and state privacy laws

  • We’ll also explore the notifiable data breaches scheme

2. Your privacy – approaches Australian privacy legislation from your personal viewpoint

  • How to make a privacy complaint

  • What to do if you get a data breach notification

  • Your My Health Record privacy

3. Workplace concerns – addresses key privacy issues frequently occurring at work

  • Explore compliance obligations, health privacy and employee privacy


Important as privacy is, it can be dry. To break it up, I’ve included some privacy tales. These are simple, cartoon-like stories, inspired by real Australian privacy complaints.


Each topic has several online quizzes and a bibliography.


Workbooks help you reflect on privacy-related questions. Indicative solutions are provided after the final lecture.


By course completion, you'll

  • Be aware of Australian privacy law

  • Know how to look after your own privacy

  • Appreciate key workplace privacy concerns

  • Public sector agency or private sector staff needing Australian privacy law awareness
