Salinger Privacy was established in 2004 by one of Australia’s foremost privacy experts.
We offer a range of privacy resources including template policies and procedures, eLearning and face-to-face compliance training options, and privacy consulting services.
Our clients come from government, the non-profit sector and businesses across Australia. No matter what sector you are in, we believe that privacy protection is essential for your reputation. In everything we do, we aim to demystify privacy law, and offer pragmatic solutions – to help you ensure regulatory compliance, and maintain the trust of your customers.
Salinger Privacy is on the Australian Government’s Privacy Services Provider Panel for Privacy Impact Assessments, privacy advice, and privacy training. We are also an approved supplier on the Victorian Government’s eServices Register; and a fully pre-qualified supplier to the NSW Government. Under the NSW Prequalification Scheme ‘Performance and Management Services’ (SCM0005), Salinger Privacy can be engaged, with no value limit, for business performance reviews and risk management advisory services, such as PIAs and privacy audits.
Salinger Privacy is an Official Training Partner of the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
August 2019 – Happy Birthday to us! Salinger Privacy is 15 years old this month, and to celebrate we are releasing goodies galore. We’ve developed three brand new resources: Untangling the APPs (a flowchart guide to using or disclosing personal information under APPs 6-9), a template PIA Report, and a guide to handling privacy complaints; you can get them all (along with stacks more) as part of a Comprehensive Compliance Kit. And we’re launching a new privacy training program open to the public, a half-day Privacy Awareness Training course. Plus Edition 13.2 of ‘the bible’ of NSW privacy law, our annotated guide PPIPA in Practice, is out now, covering case law up to 31 July.
September 2019 – Our Privacy Learning Manager Andrea Calleia is presenting at the Australian HR Institute’s National Convention and Exhibition in Brisbane, on common privacy risks in the HR space. We made a submission to the ACCC on its Customer Loyalty Schemes review. And just announced: the first of our 2020 training dates! Our ever-popular Privacy Management in Practice full day workshop for privacy officers will next run in March 2020.
October 2019 – Our Director Anna Johnston is interviewed for the Talking HealthTech podcast. Also this month Anna is a panelist for the Information Technology Professionals Association Breakfast Briefing on 16 October, on the topic “Privacy & Compliance – are you covered?” On 29 October, Anna joins forces with our Associate Stephen Wilson to present “From Privacy by Design to Privacy Engineering: Turning Law into Design Solutions“, a workshop at the IAPP’s annual Australia/New Zealand Summit. And we still have spaces available for our CIPP/E program on 31 Oct-1 Nov in Sydney.
