15-06 – Information and Privacy Commission – Privacy Governance Framework

What’s new or changing

  • The Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) has launched the Privacy Governance Framework (PGF), a new resource to help councils manage their responsibilities under the NSW privacy regime.

What this will mean for your council

  • IPC suggests councils and county councils include the PGF in their internal governance to help better understand and address their roles and responsibilities in relation to privacy management.

Key points

  • The PGF is an online interactive tool designed to assist NSW public sector agencies to;
    • understand the NSW privacy and personal information protection framework;
    • identify how the NSW privacy regime can be effectively implemented; and
    • help agencies identify, measure and resolve privacy risks to comply with NSW privacy legislation.
