About this module
What this module covers
This module provides participants with an overall awareness of their legal obligations.
On completion of this module, participants will understand:
- the meaning of privacy, and why it matters to their organisation
- the meaning of ‘personal information’
- the scope of the privacy laws in Australia
- what the privacy principles say, and
- how they apply in practice.
Why this module is important
Protecting the privacy of the personal information you hold is part-and-parcel of doing good business. This module will help your staff understand their legal obligations, and maintain the trust of your customers – and the reputation of your organisation.
Who this module is for
All members of staff, at any entity regulated by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). This includes federal government agencies and businesses around Australia.
(If you are from a NSW public sector agency, including local councils, local health districts and public universities in NSW, please instead see our Privacy Awareness Training for NSW Public Sector Agencies.)
Our Privacy Awareness Training module provides a solid basis for anyone who needs to understand privacy and the importance of protecting privacy in the course of their work. This module can work as an induction program for new staff, or as a refresher module as part of ongoing staff training.
For someone new to the privacy profession, this module will also work as a starting point from which to build your privacy expertise. The next step for privacy professionals – and indeed other professionals with an interest in the area, such as legal, information security, risk and compliance professionals – is to undertake one or more of our specialised eLearning modules and/or access our other resources on specific privacy topics.
