All members of staff, at any NSW public sector agency regulated by the PPIP and HRIP Acts. This includes State government departments and authorities, State-owned corporations, local councils, and public universities in NSW.
(If you are from an entity regulated by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), such as federal government agencies, non-profits and businesses around Australia, please instead see our Privacy Act Compliance Training.)
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.
