Victorian Privacy Network

The Victorian Privacy Network brings together privacy professionals from across Victoria.

The Victorian Privacy Network provides an opportunity for privacy and information management professionals to hear from guest speakers, network, and learn from each other’s experiences.

This network is open to professionals in any sector who work directly in privacy and information management, or who simply have an interest in the area. Meetings are held twice a year. Guest speakers will be invited to talk on topical issues, and members are also welcome to present on their work or other privacy-related matters that may be of interest to the network.
