Responsible and effective information sharing can deliver many benefits for public sector organisations and the public. However, information must be shared appropriately to protect individuals’ privacy rights.
OVIC has updated a draft Information Sharing and Privacy resource to guide Victorian public sector organisations on how to share personal information under the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic).
It discusses the benefits of sharing information, explains how to establish an information sharing culture, suggests matters to consider at key stages of information sharing and explores information sharing agreements.
The resource also contains examples of information sharing, a case study and a flowchart that gives organisations a high-level overview of what to consider when sharing information.
