Audit report – Standard 8 of the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards
OVIC conducted an audit to assess four organisations’ adherence to Standard 8 of the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards (VPDSS or Standards), and to identify areas of potential improvement. The four organisations involved in the audit were the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR), the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), and Victorian WorkCover Authority (WorkSafe).
In this audit, OVIC examined whether these four organisations have appropriate practices and procedures in place to ensure that third parties they share public sector information with are protecting it appropriately, including when they collect, hold, use, disclose or transfer information.
This report aims to highlight some of the good practices and lessons from the audit.
