Privacy Act Compliance
Identity theft costs Australians more than $2.2 billion a year, according to the credit bureau Baycorp Advantage.
In a bid to protect Australians against fraud, the Australian Government outlined serious responsibilities for “record keepers” in the 1988 Privacy Act that held them accountable to accredited paper-shredding, document-destruction and paper-recycling measures.
Principle 4 of the Privacy Act mandates that record-keepers must protect records “against loss; against unauthorised access, use, modification or disclosure; and against other misuse”.
