Description


The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) will be launching Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) on 14 May 2018 at 1 William Street, Brisbane.

The launch event will feature a range of speakers, including Professor David Lacey Managing Director of IDCARE and Professor of Cyber Security at the University of the Sunshine Coast and Mr Paul McCarney, CEO of Data Republic. The event will be opened by the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Hon. Yvette D'Ath MP and the Master of Ceremonies will be Queensland’s Privacy Commissioner, Mr Philip Green.

Professor Lacey is a researcher, author and teacher in identity security and engages across the community with individuals and organisations that are in need of specialist prevention, preparedness and response advice to breaches and exploitation of personal information. IDCARE under his leadership has developed to become an internationally renowned public-private identity and cybercrime support capability which is being modelled across various countries. Professor Lacey will speak to his recent research into privacy and identity breaches across Australia, in particular Queensland and provide advice on best practice for managing personal data, including the development of a new online tool for the community to proactively search for and remove their personal information when it is posted online.

Mr Paul McCarney is an investor and entrepreneur in the digital technology, data and marketing space. He has partnered with organisations such as National Australia Bank and the New South Wales Government to provide guidance on privacy by design, and aims to move the conversation about personal information protection beyond compliance with legislation to a culture of respect and digital innovation. Mr McCarney will speak to best practice in data governance in the digital age, in particular 3 key principles: privacy, security and good governance when navigating personal information and digital technology.
