Victorian Privacy Network

The Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner (OVIC)’s 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, meet each other in person, and share 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 of the network will be 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.

Meetings will be held in Melbourne CBD and will be live streamed to allow those in regional areas to participate remotely.

If you would like to join the Victorian Privacy Network, register via the form below.

For further information or if you have any questions, please contact us at or on 1300 00 6842.
