Organisations that collect, use, store, manage or disclose information, including personal information, as part of their business practices face an ever changing and complex regime of privacy and data protection laws, both in Australia and overseas.

Australian organisations have been substantively affected by the recent introduction of:

  • the new Australian mandatory breach notification laws; and

  • the European Union General Data Protection Regulation 2016 which has extra-territorial application and therefore potentially affects Australian organisations.

Vault Legal’s data protection and privacy lawyers have extensive experience advising clients on all aspects of compliance with data protection and privacy laws. We assist clients to understand their privacy obligations and manage data risk by:

  • advising on all aspects of compliance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), the Australian Privacy Principles and new mandatory data breach notification laws;

  • providing advice and assisting clients to respond to privacy complaints and data breaches;

  • preparing and implementing privacy policies, codes of conduct, and internal procedures;

  • protecting privacy in the workplace, including providing staff with training on privacy compliance and data protection;

  • advising on the Spam Act 2003 (Cth) and Do Not Call Register Act 2006 (Cth);
